What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running correctly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common situation could be that the fan belt got loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system 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, turn off your AC system immediately and call Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is usually a sign of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
