What’s an AC Emergency?

Temperatures are rising. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running properly. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost? 

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 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 decide the severity by yourself, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and give us a call.  

Strange Sounds

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

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical issue or a piece 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 & Plumbing immediately for 24 hour AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
