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 it is functioning properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as 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, around the clock 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 on your own, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, 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, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a symptom of an electrical issue or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely 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 blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. 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, particularly 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 weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
