What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You may have heard that Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

First of all, you can always call Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity without an expert, here are a couple issues where you should go ahead and call us.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, screaming noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is normally a sign of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit 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 culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
