What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is running correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, screaming noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is generally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
