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 everything is running correctly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 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, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to have an expert come out 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 dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a symptom of an electrical malfunction 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 immediately 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 flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system 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, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
