What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning perfectly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Pardee Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Pardee Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 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 situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Pardee Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually an indication of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Pardee Service Experts right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue 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 too hot, go ahead and call Pardee Service Experts, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
