What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already switched over to your air conditioning system to make sure it is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your AC system 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 may have heard that Knochelmann Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what is actually considered 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, around the clock 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 by yourself, here are a couple matters where you should go ahead and call us.

Suspicious Sounds

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

Stinky Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a sign of an electrical complication or a piece has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Knochelmann Service Experts immediately for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your AC system doesn’t seem to be turning on, 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 air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the AC isn’t producing 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 family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
