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 functioning correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t confident 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 air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Please know that you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a symptom of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t producing 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 family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
