What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is running perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You have probably heard that Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Epperson 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 an expert needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, screaming noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is usually an indication of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
