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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty 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 find yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can take a look at, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prep for a predicament 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 handy area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner is out. It might seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Running:

  • Check the circuit breaker. There’s a chance that the breaker to your air conditioner may have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this occurs, turn the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
