What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running perfectly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered 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, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity by yourself, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Squeeling Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt is loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a sound seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is certainly 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 conditioning unit 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, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
