What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late and you aren’t positive 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 is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are 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 check the severity without an expert, here are a couple issues where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, screaming noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen 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, shrieking noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally a sign of an electrical issue or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible 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 malfunctioned. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. 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 is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
