What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is working properly. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC 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 you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity by yourself, here are a couple matters where you should go ahead and call us.

Squeeling Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency 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, shrieking noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is normally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
