What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to contact someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Sunbeam Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Sunbeam Service Experts, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity without an expert, here are some situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Sunbeam Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is usually a sign of an electrical complication or a component has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Sunbeam Service Experts as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Sunbeam Service Experts, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
