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 functioning perfectly. 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 you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes 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, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Suspicious 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 life happens and you need to call 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 hazardous. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

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 really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication 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, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
