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

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to have an expert come out 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 a sound seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Teays Valley Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
