What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is running right. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is acting up, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if 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 conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are some situations where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Squeeling Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, screaming noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt is loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this issue, 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 functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is generally an indication of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t providing 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 heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
