What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to check the severity by yourself, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, screeching noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually a symptom of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t providing 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 weather, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
