What Constitutes as an AC Emergency Published on May 13, 2016 Heat has arrived. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is acting up, and you want to call someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner 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, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, at all times to help decide if someone needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning. When trying to evaluate the severity without an expert, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and give us a call. Strange SoundsThere are a few reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens 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 dangerous. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service. Unusual SmellsA burning stench coming from your air conditioner is generally an indication of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24/7 AC repair.No Air FlowIf your AC system 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, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
