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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating 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 find yourself in a situation like this where it feels like you’re destined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a couple things you can inspect, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prepare 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 have a better chance at averting a toasty morning.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another handy area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner isn’t running. It might seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be nice 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 another reason. If this happens, switch the breaker back on and you could 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 put up with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has gone out, but the possibility is real if you don’t take the right steps.
