Here in the St. Louis area, we have grown accustomed to the occasional severe storm during the spring and summer months. Along with the possibility of wind damage, one of the biggest threats to your home during severe weather is lightning. If lightning strikes a power line near your home, it can create a power surge that can shut down your appliances and even cut off power to your home. Because your air conditioner is powered by electricity, it’s useful to know how to turn it back on in the event that it is affected by a loss of power. Today we’re going to explain how to do that by talking about how to restart your air conditioner after a power outage!
If you followed the steps above and your air conditioner won’t turn back on, give Jerry Kelly a call. There may be a problem with one of the electrical components, so your system will need to be inspected by a professional technician.
Although you can’t do much to prevent a power outage in your home, you can minimize the chances of a power surge affecting your air conditioner by installing an A/C surge protector. Jerry Kelly can install a surge protector for your system so that you can operate it without worry, even during severe weather.
