What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is working correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is acting up, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is usually a sign of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24 hour 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 failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
