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 functioning 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 confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Wesley Wood Service Experts 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?

First of all, you can always call Wesley Wood Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert 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 some matters where you should go ahead and call us.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen 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 operating at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Wesley Wood Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Wesley Wood 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 sign that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Wesley Wood Service Experts, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
