What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning properly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your AC system is acting up, 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 you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Parker Pearce Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Parker Pearce Service Experts, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock 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 determine the severity without an expert, here are some issues where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Parker Pearce Service Experts 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 as soon as possible for 24 hour 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 A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Parker Pearce Service Experts, 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 temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
