What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning correctly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You have probably heard that Midway Services is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Midway Services, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Midway Services for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a symptom of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Midway Services as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Midway Services, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
