What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is functioning correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity by yourself, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common problem may be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is normally an indication of an electrical malfunction or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
