What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running properly. But what do you do 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 you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Atmostemp Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is 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 someone needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to determine the severity on your own, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Suspicious Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt became loose. Standard 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 AC system 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 AC system immediately and call Atmostemp Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Stinky 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 as soon as possible 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 blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Atmostemp Service Experts, especially if there are extreme temperatures, 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.
