What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Thousand Oaks 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 end up in a situation like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can check, as well as a few things you can do, to stay on your toes and have a plan for a situation 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 avoid a toasty situation.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create 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 is out. It may seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will be nice 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 could have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this occurs, flip the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have turned it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
