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

November 04, 2015

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty in your bed. Your first thought is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to leave yourself in a situation 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 handful of things you can do, to stay on your toes and prepare for a scenario 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 avert a toasty situation.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner is out. It could seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Running:

  • 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 occurs, switch the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to schedule 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 opportunity is real if you don’t take the proper steps.
