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 running right. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, 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 you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Golden Seal Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency AC 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, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out right away 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.

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioner might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt is 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 dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Golden Seal Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is normally an indication of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Golden Seal 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 coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Golden Seal Service Experts, especially 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.
