What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it 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 you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Komfort 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?

Keep in mind, you can always call Komfort Air Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

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

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is normally a symptom of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Komfort Air Service Experts immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Komfort Air Service Experts, particularly 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 temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
