What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Bossier City 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. 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 situation like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a few things you can inspect, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ready and have a plan for a predicament like this.

Before You Experience Problems:

  • Air conditioner service. Warmer nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you avoid a toasty predicament.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner isn’t running. It might 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 some other reason. If this is the case, switch the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
