What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late 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 is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

First of all, you can always call Stevenson Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt became 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 dangerous. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Stevenson Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical complication or a component has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Stevenson Service Experts as soon as possible 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 failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem 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, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
