What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Phoenix 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 end up in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a couple things you can inspect, 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. Warm nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you avoid a toasty predicament.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner isn’t running. It might seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will be nice when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Working:

  • Check the circuit breaker. There’s a chance that the breaker to your air conditioner might have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this happens, turn the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
