What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to contact someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered 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 team is available live, at all times to help decide if someone needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt is loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is normally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the air conditioner 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 heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
