What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. 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 AC system is acting up, 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 Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come out right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen 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 functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioner is normally an indication of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be turning 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 not cool, go ahead and call Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
