What to do When You Need Emergency AC Service
One of the worst things that can happen is having your air conditioner break down, especially during the peak of summer heat here in Westchester. The best way to prevent this from happening is to make sure that you schedule regular tune-up work. This enables an industry professional to keep an eye on possible problems that need to be addressed.
At the very least, making it a point to call in a Westchester heating and air conditioning contractor when you notice a chance in your system’s performance, or when you know you have repair needs. However, sometimes emergencies just happen out of the blue without any prior warning. Here are the key steps you need to keep in mind in order to get your system back up and running, as quickly as possible.
First Thing’s First
You notice the AC is still running but no cold air is coming through the vents. Or, it could be, that the system is not working at all. The nest steps you should take are:
Check the Breaker – It may sound like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised. In a panic it can be easy to overlook the obvious things to check. So make sure to check this first. Even if the rest of your home has power, this one breaker could trip and cause you to lose functional air conditioning.
Take Control of the Situation – If you have checked for obvious reasons the AC may not be working, now it is time to deal with your unique household situation. For instance, if you have anyone in your home that has health conditions that could be negatively impacted by a lack of cool air, it might be time to see if a neighbor can taken them in until a professional can come out and fix it.
Keep Things Cool – This is the ideal time to break out any floor fans and put ceiling fans to good use. In dire circumstances, you can place a pan of ice in front of a box fan for a makeshift air conditioner until professional help arrives.
Don’t DIY – Attempting to do any repair work on your own could end up making things worse and could even lead to physical injury. Call a reputable pro right away and leave the work to a trained and experienced expert.
