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 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 is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Chief/Bauer Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity by yourself, here are some cases where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common situation could be that the fan belt got loose. Standard 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 a sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Chief/Bauer Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a sign 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 absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Chief/Bauer Service Experts as soon as possible 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 coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Chief/Bauer Service Experts, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
