What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have 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 what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, 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 check the severity by yourself, here are some issues where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Standard 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 dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is generally a symptom of an electrical issue or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite 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 turning on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
