What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning properly. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You may have heard that Coastal Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

First of all, you can always call Coastal Service Experts, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come out immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, screaming noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Coastal Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is normally a symptom of an electrical problem or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Coastal Service Experts right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Coastal Service Experts, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
