What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You have probably heard that A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Please know that you can always call A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come out right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screaming noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency 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, shrieking noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is normally a sign of an electrical problem or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the air conditioner isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
