What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, 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 have probably heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes 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 team is available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is usually an indication of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
