What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. 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 uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that Broad Ripple Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Broad Ripple Service Experts, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock 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 check the severity by yourself, here are a few matters where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Suspicious Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, squeeling 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 air conditioner immediately and call Broad Ripple Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is usually a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Broad Ripple Service Experts as soon as possible for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

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