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

November 04, 2015

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating 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 find yourself in a situation like this where it feels like you’re destined to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a few things you can check, as well as a few things you can do, to stay ready 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 predicament.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Set aside some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cool while your air conditioner isn’t working. It might seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief 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 might have been tripped by a power surge or for another reason. If this occurs, turn the breaker back on and you could be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have flipped it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t running, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.

No one wants to put up 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 correct steps.
