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 get in touch 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 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner 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 team is available live, around the clock 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 check the severity on your own, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt is loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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 functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is usually an indication of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an 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 a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t generating 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 someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
