What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is working properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably 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 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 agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal 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 service.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner 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 definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC 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 are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
