What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Levy & Son Service Experts is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Levy & Son Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity on your own, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner 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 air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the noise seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call Levy & Son Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is usually a symptom of an electrical issue or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Levy & Son Service Experts right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Levy & Son Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
