What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is working correctly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that A1 Chesney Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call A1 Chesney Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity by yourself, here are a couple issues where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes life happens 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, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call A1 Chesney Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is normally a sign of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call A1 Chesney Service Experts as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, 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 conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call A1 Chesney Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
