What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Cottonwood Prior to AC Repair

November 04, 2015

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty in your bed. The first thought to go through your head is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to end up in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a few things you can inspect, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prepare for a predicament like this.

Before You Experience Problems:

  • Air conditioner service. Warmer nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you have a better chance at averting a toasty morning.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cool while your air conditioner isn’t working. It could seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Working:

  • Check the circuit breaker. There’s a chance that the breaker to your air conditioner might have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this is the case, turn the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.

No one wants to put up with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has gone out, but the probability is real if you don’t take the proper steps.
