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 find yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to arrange AC repair, but there are a few things you can check, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay on your toes and prep for a scenario 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 predicament.
- [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Find some room in a closet, drawer or another handy area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner isn’t working. It may seem inconvenient or unnecessary now, but it will be nice when you need it most.

If this is the case, flip the breaker back on and you could be set.
