What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is not working, and you want to call 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 around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity without an expert, here are some matters where you should go ahead and call us.

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite 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 running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
