What’s an AC Emergency?

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost? 

First of all, you can always call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, 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 to your home right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning. 

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system 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 noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service. 

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally an indication of an electrical complication or a part 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 Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner 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 source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
