What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning right. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is not cooling, 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 around the clock for emergency air conditioning 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, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, at all times to help decide if someone needs to come out right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity on your own, here are a couple 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 issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is operating 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 service.

Unusual Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical problem or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely 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 a sign 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 someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
