What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is working correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system 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 is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Comfortech Service Experts , no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come out right away 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 AC system might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to call 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 for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is usually a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Comfortech Service Experts as soon as possible 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 coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit 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 , especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
