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 running right. 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 24/7/365 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 an expert needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity on your own, here are a few issues where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, turn 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 component has become so overheated that it’s actually 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 an indication 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 generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
