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

November 04, 2015

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 destined to suffer until morning to set up AC repair, but there are a few things you can check, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prep for a situation 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 avoid 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 isn’t running. It might seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Operating:

  • 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 a different reason. If this is the case, flip the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.

No one wants to have an encounter with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has stopped working, but the probability is real if you don’t take the right steps.
