What Constitutes as an AC Emergency Published on May 13, 2016 Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running right. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably 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 convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost? Keep in mind, you can always call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning. When trying to evaluate the severity on your own, here are some issues where you should go ahead and call a professional. Suspicious SoundsThere are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen 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 running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service. Unusual SmellsA burning stench coming from your air conditioner is usually an indication of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioning system 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 FlowIf your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
