What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. 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, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times to help decide if someone needs to come check it out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screeching noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, 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 running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a sound seems excessive, turn 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 usually a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner 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 conditioner doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, 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 bit the dust. If the AC 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 cool air in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
