What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You have probably heard that Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Please know that you can always call Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are a few matters where you should go ahead and call us.

Strange Sounds

There are a few reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, screaming noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out 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 unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is usually an indication of an electrical issue or a piece has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning right away for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a problem with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally met its maker. If the AC isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
