What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Paso Robles 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 predicament like this where it feels like you’re destined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can check, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prep for a scenario 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 situation.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler 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 another reason. If this occurs, flip the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have switched 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 deal with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has quit running, but the possibility is real if you don’t take the proper steps.
