What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running 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 might have heard that Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity by yourself, 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, screeching noises. One common situation could be that the fan belt became 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 a sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is usually an indication of an electrical issue or a piece has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible 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 malfunctioned. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Peitz Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
