What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is working properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is acting up, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

First of all, you can always call D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come out right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity on your own, here are some issues where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24/7 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 symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
