What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning perfectly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s late 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 is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Epperson Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to check 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 could be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes life happens 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, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Epperson Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is normally an indication of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Epperson Service Experts as soon as possible 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, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Epperson Service Experts, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
