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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up dripping sweat 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 leave yourself in a situation 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 handful of things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prep for a predicament 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 have a better chance at averting a toasty morning.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler 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 Running:

  • 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 occurs, turn the breaker back on and you may 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 set up an appointment for AC repair.
