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 the system is working right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Please know that you can always call Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, around the clock to help decide if someone needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt got loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to have an expert come out 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 dangerous. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is usually an indication of an electrical issue 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 Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
