What’s an AC Emergency?

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is on the fritz, and you want to contact 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 air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost? 

Keep in mind, you can always call Stevenson Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning. 

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

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common situation could be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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, shrieking noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Stevenson Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment. 

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is normally an indication of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Stevenson Service Experts as soon as possible 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 flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Stevenson Service Experts, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
