What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Air Engineers Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Air Engineers Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screaming noises. One common situation could be that the fan belt is loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Air Engineers Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is usually an indication of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Air Engineers Service Experts immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Air Engineers Service Experts, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
