What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not cooling, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Levy & Son Service Experts is available around the clock 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, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common problem 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 air conditioner immediately and call Levy & Son Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

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

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking 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, a problem 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 an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
