What’s an AC Emergency?

Temperatures are rising. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is working correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is acting up, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning 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 Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning. 

When trying to check the severity on your own, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call an expert.  

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service. 

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is usually an indication of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
