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 the system is functioning perfectly. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Strogen's Service Experts is available around the clock 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 Strogen's Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock 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 on your own, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioning unit immediately and call Strogen's Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is generally an indication of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Strogen's Service Experts right away for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Strogen's Service Experts, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
