What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is acting up, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day 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, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home 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 call an expert.

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, screeching noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt is loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, 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 running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the noise seems excessive, shut down 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 AC system is normally a symptom of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit 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 source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. 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 you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
