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

November 04, 2015

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating 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 predicament like this where it feels like you’re destined to suffer until morning to set up AC repair, but there are a couple things you can take a look at, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and prepare 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 have a better chance at averting a toasty predicament.
  • [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 could seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be nice 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 occurs, switch the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t working, give us a call to set up an appointment for AC repair.
