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 functioning properly. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is acting up, and you want to contact 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 might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will 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 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 cases where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common issue could 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, screeching noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the noise seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is usually a sign of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately 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 a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
