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

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 find yourself in a situation like this where it feels like you’re doomed 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 couple things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prepare 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 avert a toasty situation.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find 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 bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief 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 might have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this is the case, turn the breaker back on and you may 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 put up with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has stopped working, but the possibility is real if you don’t take the correct steps.
