What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system is not cooling, and you want to contact 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 is available 24/7/365 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 Midland Air Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 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 issues 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 might 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 air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Midland Air Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

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

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, 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, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
