What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is acting up, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is available 24/7/365 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 Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity without an expert, here are a couple matters where you should go ahead and call us.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common situation may be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out 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 unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is generally a symptom of an electrical issue or a piece has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing right away 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 coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, 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 heat absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
