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 functioning correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to call someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You have probably heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Please know that you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is normally a sign of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioner 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 turning on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, 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 weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
