What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Long Beach 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 thing you think 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 schedule AC repair, but there are a couple things you can check, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready 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 avoid a toasty morning.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another handy 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 come in handy 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 could have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this occurs, switch the breaker back on and you may 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 set up 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 right steps.
