What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to call someone but it’s late 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 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it 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 team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are some issues where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call 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 unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a symptom of an electrical issue or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the air conditioner isn’t producing 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 weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
