What’s an AC Emergency?

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is on the fritz, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Stevenson Service Experts is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost? 

First of all, you can always call Stevenson Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning. 

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

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Stevenson Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job. 

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is normally a symptom of an electrical problem or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Stevenson Service Experts immediately for 24 hour AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Stevenson Service Experts, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
