What’s an AC Emergency?

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is running properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to contact 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 have probably heard that Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost? 

Keep in mind, you can always call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning. 

When trying to check the severity without an expert, here are some matters where you should go ahead and call us.  

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing for an emergency AC repair service. 

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical complication 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 & Plumbing immediately for 24 hour AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. 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 generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
