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 hot, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch 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 might have heard that Church Services is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioner repair, but what is actually considered 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 right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to check the severity on your own, here are a couple issues where you should go ahead and give us a call.

Suspicious Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screeching noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt became loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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, 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 AC system immediately and call Church Services for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your AC system is generally a sign of an electrical problem or a part has become so overheated that it’s seriously 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 air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning 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, a problem 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 warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Church Services, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
