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 it is running properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t convinced 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 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, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out immediately or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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 conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly 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 a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t providing 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 is extreme weather, 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.
