What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity without an expert, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Squeeling Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard 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, squeeling noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your AC system 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 issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s really 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 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason 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 providing 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 weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
