What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running right. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity on your own, here are a couple matters where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Squeeling Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making weird, screeching noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling 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 R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Unusual Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is usually a symptom of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the air conditioner isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
