What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Temperatures are rising. You have probably already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is on the fritz, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You might have heard that Knochelmann Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Knochelmann Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if someone needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

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

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making strange, screaming noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt got loose. Regular maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioner could be making a loud, screeching noise is that the compressor is functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your AC system immediately and call Knochelmann Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally an indication of an electrical complication or a component has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is absolutely an emergency AC repair. Call Knochelmann Service Experts as soon as possible for 24 hour 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 crashed. The source 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 Knochelmann Service Experts, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
