What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, 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 may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does 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 team is available live, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is generally an indication of an electrical complication or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
