What’s an AC Emergency?

Heat has arrived. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is working perfectly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might 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? 

Please know that you can always call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning. 

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing for an emergency AC repair job. 

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is generally a sign of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly 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 hour AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
