What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You may have heard that Peitz Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Peitz Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to have an expert come out 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 dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Peitz Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is usually a sign of an electrical issue or a piece has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Peitz Service Experts immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Peitz 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 a functioning A/C in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
