What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running correctly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to call someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Komfort Air is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Komfort Air, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come check it 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 cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Komfort Air for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally a symptom of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Komfort Air immediately for round the clock 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 failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Komfort Air, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
