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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up dripping sweat 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 destined to suffer until morning to schedule 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 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 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 bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy 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 might have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this occurs, flip the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is tripped and you have turned 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 quit running, but the probability is real if you don’t take the proper steps.
