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 everything 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 might have heard that D.A. Bennett Service Experts is available 24/7/365 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, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to check the severity by yourself, here are some cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt is loose. Standard 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 for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is generally an indication 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 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 blowing, 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 kicked the bucket. 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, especially 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 heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
