What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running perfectly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioning system is not cooling, and you want to get in touch 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 Donelson Air Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Donelson Air Service Experts, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, at all times to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to decide the severity without an expert, here are a couple cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call 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 hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioning unit immediately and call Donelson Air Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is usually an indication of an electrical issue or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Donelson Air Service Experts as soon as possible for 24 hour 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 reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Donelson Air Service Experts, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
