What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in the Rio Grande Valley Prior to AC Repair

November 04, 2015

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 leave yourself in a scenario like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to arrange 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 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 predicament.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Set aside some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cool while your air conditioner isn’t working. It could seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy 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 is the case, switch the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to arrange 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 stopped working, but the opportunity is real if you don’t take the proper steps.
