What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running perfectly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is on the fritz, 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 may have heard that Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to decide the severity on your own, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt is loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system 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, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is usually an indication of an electrical malfunction or a component 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 Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system 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 air conditioning unit 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 Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert 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.
