What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, 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 AC repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Keep in mind, 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, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out 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 AC system might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, 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 operating at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner 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 an indication of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually 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 24/7 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, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the AC 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, 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 temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
