What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running properly. But what if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is acting up, 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 comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that TML Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call TML Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service representatives are available live, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity on your own, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common issue could be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be dangerous. If the noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call TML Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is usually a sign of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s literally burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is certainly an emergency AC repair. Call TML Service Experts immediately 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 a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the AC isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call TML Service Experts, particularly if there is extreme heat, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe temperatures definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
