What’s an AC Emergency?

When trying to decide the severity on your own, here are some cases where you should go ahead and call us.  

Strange Sounds

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

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is usually an indication of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing right away for 24 hour AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
