What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already switched over to 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 after 8 p.m. and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might 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?

Please know that you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a 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 smell coming from your air conditioning unit is normally an indication 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 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 flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The source 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, especially 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 temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
