What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s late 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 around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity on your own, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and call us.

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is normally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system 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 cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t producing 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 your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
