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 end up in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re predestined to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a few things you can check, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay ready and have a plan for a situation like this.
Before You Experience Problems:
