What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. 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?

Please know that you can always call Air Engineers Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt is loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching 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 AC system immediately and call Air Engineers Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is normally a sign of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Air Engineers Service Experts immediately for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t producing 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 someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
