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 correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is not working, and you want to contact 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 24/7/365 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 agents are available live, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt is loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, turn 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 a sign 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 immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner 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 reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system 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, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
