What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is working perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are some matters where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt is loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the noise seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a symptom of an electrical issue or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
