What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Comfort Masters Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Comfort Masters Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, at all times 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 check the severity by yourself, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Comfort Masters Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is generally a symptom of an electrical problem or a component has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Comfort Masters Service Experts as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Comfort Masters Service Experts, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, 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.
