What’s an AC Emergency?

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost? 

Please know that you can always call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning. 

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, screaming noises. One common situation could be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If the noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioning unit immediately and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job. 

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is normally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
