What’s an AC Emergency?

Heat has arrived. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is working perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost? 

First of all, you can always call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something that can wait until morning. 

When trying to check the severity by yourself, here are a few issues where you should go ahead and call a professional.  

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes things happen and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service. 

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning as soon as possible 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 flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get someone out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
