What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning correctly. But what 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 confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. 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 what will it 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 someone needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, screaming noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt got loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to call 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 AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is generally an indication of an electrical malfunction or a part 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 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 coming out, 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 system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
