What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is working properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Gordon's Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Gordon's Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come check it out immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity on your own, here are a few cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Suspicious Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, screeching noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency 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 working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your air conditioning unit immediately and call Gordon's Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a symptom of an electrical problem or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Gordon's Service Experts immediately for round the clock 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 crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Gordon's Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
