What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is acting up, 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 Teays Valley Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Please know that you can always call Teays Valley Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come out right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, shrieking 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 hazardous. If a sound seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Teays Valley Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is usually an indication 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 right away for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, 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 air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Teays Valley Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
