What’s an AC Emergency?

Temperatures are rising. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is not working, 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 comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost? 

First of all, 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, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning. 

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.  

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal 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 air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the noise seems excessive, shut down your AC system 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 issue or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
