What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is working correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident 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 what will it cost?

Please know that 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 check it out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt is loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally an indication of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioning system 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 kicking on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The culprit 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 producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, 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 family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
