What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, 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 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes 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 someone needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are some cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common problem 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 call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is normally a symptom of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally 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 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking 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, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the system 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, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
