What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning right. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioner is not working, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You have probably heard that Bob Brown Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Please know that you can always call Bob Brown 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 to your home 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 matters where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes things happen and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner 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 sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Bob Brown Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a sign of an electrical malfunction or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Bob Brown Service Experts right away for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem 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 Bob Brown Service Experts, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
