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 everything is working right. But what 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 Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 out 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 multiple reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical problem or a component has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner 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 kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
