What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running right. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. 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 will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come out right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity by yourself, here are a couple issues where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, 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, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is usually an indication of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally met its maker. 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, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
