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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up dripping sweat in your bed. The first thing you think is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to end up in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re destined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can check, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ahead of the game and have a plan for a predicament 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 have a better chance at averting a toasty morning.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner isn’t working. It might seem annoying or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Working:

  • 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 running, give us a call to schedule 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 quit running, but the possibility is real if you don’t take the right steps.
