What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running correctly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Church Services is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Church Services, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to determine the severity by yourself, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt is loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen 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, squeeling noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioner immediately and call Church Services for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is generally an indication 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 a definite emergency AC repair. Call Church Services right away 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 an indication that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Church Services, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
