Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens 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 running at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing for an emergency AC repair appointment. 

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is usually a symptom of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing as soon as possible for round the clock AC repair. 

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
