What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already turned on 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 contact someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare 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?

Keep in mind, you can always call Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come out right away 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 multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became 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 functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is normally an indication of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be kicking 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 bit the dust. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
