May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to contact someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, shrieking noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen and you need to call 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, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is generally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
