What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Norton 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 end up in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re destined to suffer until morning to set up AC repair, but there are a few things you can take a look at, as well as a few things you can do, to stay on your toes 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 avert a toasty situation.
  • [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 cool while your air conditioner is out. It may seem annoying 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 may have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this occurs, turn the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
