What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning correctly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You may have heard that Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

First of all, you can always call Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screaming noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is normally an indication of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts 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 sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, 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 definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
