What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Please know that you can always call Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, screeching noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt is loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is normally an indication of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system 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 Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
