What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, 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 you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come out right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to determine the severity on your own, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning as soon as possible for 24 hour 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 coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Peachtree Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
