What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is working right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that San Antonio Air Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call San Antonio Air Service Experts, anytime of day, 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 you could wait out until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to get in touch with a professional 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 dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call San Antonio Air Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is generally a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call San Antonio Air Service Experts as soon as possible for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, 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 problem with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call San Antonio Air Service Experts, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
