What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning properly. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity on your own, here are a few matters where you should go ahead and call us.

Suspicious Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
