What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is working perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioner is not working, and you want to get in touch 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 may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it 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 out immediately or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner 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 appointment.

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 actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system 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 is extreme heat, so we can get someone 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.
