What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You may have already turned on 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 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 you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Donelson Air Service Experts is available 24/7/365 for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Donelson Air Service Experts, day or night, 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.

Strange Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt is loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this issue, but sometimes there’s an emergency 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 dangerous. If a noise seems excessive, shut 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 a sign 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 absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Donelson Air Service Experts immediately for 24/7 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 coming out, 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 A/C system could have finally bit the dust. If the AC 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 family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe weather definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
