What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Please know that you can always call Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are a couple matters where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Squeeling Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24 hour 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 an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Wesley Wood Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
