What’s an AC Emergency?

Summer weather on its way. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is on the fritz, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You have probably heard that Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost? 

First of all, you can always call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning. 

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and call an expert.  

Strange Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment. 

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical complication or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning 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 flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
