What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Comfort Masters Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner 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 agents are available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come out right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Suspicious Sounds

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

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system 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 an indication that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. 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 family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
