What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times 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 evaluate the severity on your own, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. 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.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally a symptom of an electrical complication 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 AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication 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 warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
