What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running correctly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You have probably heard that D & K Heating Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call D & K Heating Service Experts, 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 check it out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes life happens and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call D & K Heating Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is generally a symptom of an electrical problem or a component 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 D & K Heating Service Experts immediately for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call D & K Heating Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
