Fear that a/c will stop working

I have heard that numerous people in the part where I live have been having issues with their air conditioning systems lately.

This scares myself and others because it is extremely sizzling and humid where I live and the heat has been extreme lately.

Without air conditioning, fans will not be enough to keep our condo cool. Even if I close the curtains, get black out shades, and put every fan on in the house, that will not be enough. If our air conditioning system stops working, I run the risk of becoming hot. I could stick our head in the freezer or take a cool shower but I do not suppose that is a permanent solution. I have also heard that people in our part are having a hard time getting an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor to come out and check their air conditioning systems in a timely manner. I have heard that it can take up to more than 2 weeks for an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor to come out, however because it is so sizzling and humid, I cannot imagine living in our condo for more than 2 weeks without air conditioning. I do have a fear that our air conditioning will stop working and it will take too long for an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier to come out. Luckily, the people I was with and I rarely have power outages at our house. Every one of us are on the same power line as a major hospital, so it is unlikely the people I was with and I will lose power. It is a relief to guess that the people I was with and I would at least not lose air conditioning due to loss of power. To prevent our air conditioning system from having issues, the people I was with and I change the filters often and use a smart control unit to control the temperature.
