What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Lake Worth 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 scenario 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 inspect, as well as a handful of 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 avert a toasty situation.
  • [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 cool while your air conditioner is out. 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 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 another reason. If this occurs, switch the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is tripped 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.

No one wants to have an encounter with AC repair in the middle of a heat wave after their air conditioner has stopped working, but the opportunity is real if you don’t take the proper steps. Give the team at Smyth Air Conditioning Inc a call at 561-533-6066 if you have any questions about these tips, the AC repair services offered or any other number of air conditioning questions.
