What’s an AC Emergency?

Summer weather on its way. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioner is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t positive this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You may have heard that Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost? 

Please know that you can always call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning. 

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

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt became loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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, squeeling noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your air conditioner immediately and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning for an emergency AC repair appointment. 

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a symptom of an electrical problem or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning as soon as possible 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 a sign that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally met its maker. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning, especially if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get an expert out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
