What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is 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, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screaming noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt got loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a sound seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause 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 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 weather, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
