What’s an AC Emergency?

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running right. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Stevenson Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost? 

First of all, you can always call Stevenson Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert 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 without an expert, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and give us a call.  

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Stevenson Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service. 

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Stevenson Service Experts immediately for 24 hour AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Stevenson Service Experts, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
