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

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweaty 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 leave yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a couple things you can check, as well as a couple things you can do, to stay ready and prep for a predicament 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 avoid a toasty morning.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner is out. It may seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be nice 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 could have been tripped by a power surge or for a different reason. If this occurs, flip the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is tripped 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 quit running, but the probability is real if you don’t take the correct steps. Give the team at Mustang Mechanical a call at 972-445-9504 if you have any questions about these tips, the AC repair services available or any other number of air conditioning questions.
