What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it 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 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, 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 immediately or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, 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, screeching noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to call 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 hazardous. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Peachtree Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner 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 immediately 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 blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Peachtree Service Experts, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
