What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity without an expert, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common situation could be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency 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 working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a sign of an electrical complication or a component has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom 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 air conditioner isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
