What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your AC system is acting up, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that Roland J. Down Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

First of all, you can always call Roland J. Down Service Experts , anytime of day, 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 ASAP or if it’s something that will be okay to 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 AC system might be making unusual, screaming noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt is loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the noise seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Roland J. Down Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is normally an indication of an electrical problem or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Roland J. Down Service Experts immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The reason 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 warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Roland J. Down Service Experts , especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
