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 do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, 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 comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that Strogen's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Strogen's 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 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 cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to call 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 Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a sign of an electrical malfunction 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 Heating & Air Conditioning 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 an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Strogen's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
