What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything 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 get in touch 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 Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock 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 issues where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, screeching noises. One common problem 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, squeeling 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 Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is usually 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 definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally met its maker. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Gordon's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
