What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is acting up, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late 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 conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does 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 an expert needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, 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, shrieking noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency 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 unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is normally a symptom of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, 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 cool air in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
