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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up dripping sweat 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 find yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to set up AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can take a look at, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and prepare for a scenario like this.

Before You Experience Problems:

  • Air conditioner service. Warm 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. Create 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 inconvenient 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 could have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this is the case, turn the breaker back on and you may be set. If the breaker is flipped and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to schedule an appointment for AC repair.
