What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident 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 what will it 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 representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out 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, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally 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 as soon as possible 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 coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. 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 warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
