What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is working correctly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is on the fritz, and you want to contact 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 have probably heard that Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally a symptom of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Comfortech Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
