What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Strand Brothers Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Please know that you can always call Strand Brothers Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity without an expert, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen 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, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Strand Brothers Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a symptom of an electrical problem or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Strand Brothers Service Experts immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Strand Brothers Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
