What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is acting up, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity without an expert, here are some situations where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is generally an indication of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
