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

November 04, 2015

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating in your bed. The first thing you think is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to leave yourself in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re destined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a few things you can take a look at, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prepare for a predicament 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 morning.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Set aside 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 could 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 a different reason. If this occurs, flip the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to arrange 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 gone out, but the possibility is real if you don’t take the right steps.
