This is a subject we want to discuss because it has triggered confusion among some of our customers regarding their air conditioning in Bloomington, CA or elsewhere in our wide service area. You may experience a sudden loss of your central AC system when its compressor shuts down. The electricity is running in the rest of your house, so there must be a problem with the air conditioner itself that will require calling us for repairs.
But not all the time. Your AC may have been shut down remotely by Southern California Edison as part of an “energy event” in Edison’s Summer Savings Program. You don’t need to call a technician, because the temporary loss of use of your air conditioner is pre-planned and the unit will soon turn on again.
