What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running properly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that Atmostemp Service Experts is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Atmostemp Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Strange Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Atmostemp Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Atmostemp Service Experts immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Atmostemp Service Experts, 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 temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
