What’s an AC Emergency?

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is running right. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is acting up, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Stevenson Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost? 

Keep in mind, you can always call Stevenson Service Experts, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning. 

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

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt is loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this issue, 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, squeeling noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Stevenson Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service. 

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally an indication of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Stevenson Service Experts right away for round the clock AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system 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 weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
