Create some room in a closet, drawer or another easy to access area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you comfortable while your air conditioner is out. It could seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will come in handy when you need it most.

If this occurs, turn the breaker back on and you could be set.
