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 if it’s not? It’s hot, 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 is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Climate Control Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is 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 some cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard 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 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, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Climate Control Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally an indication of an electrical malfunction or a component 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 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 blowing, 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 A/C system 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, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
