What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running perfectly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to contact someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Robinson Service Experts is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

First of all, you can always call Robinson Service Experts , day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come to your home right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common problem could be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is running at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, shut down your AC system immediately and call Robinson Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is normally an indication of an electrical problem or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Robinson Service Experts right away 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 blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The source could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Robinson Service Experts , particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
