What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is working properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, 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 can wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity without an expert, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and call us.

Squeeling Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt is loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is normally a sign of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t providing 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 home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
