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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating 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 find yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can inspect, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prep for a situation like this.

Before You Experience Problems:

  • Air conditioner service. Hot nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you avert a toasty situation.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another handy area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cool while your air conditioner isn’t running. It might seem bothersome 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 could have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this is the case, switch the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to set up an appointment for AC repair.
