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 functioning right. But what 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 Home Services by Enercare is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call D&K Home Services by Enercare, 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 some situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common situation could 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 dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call D&K Home Services by Enercare for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is generally a symptom of an electrical problem 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 D&K Home Services by Enercare immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call D&K Home Services by Enercare, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
