What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in St. Cloud Prior to AC Repair

November 04, 2015

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty 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 end up in a situation like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to set up AC repair, but there are a few things you can take a look at, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prep for a scenario 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 avert a toasty situation.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner isn’t working. It could seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief 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 may have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this happens, flip the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
