What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You may have already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is functioning properly. But what do you do if it’s not? It’s uncomfortably warm, your air conditioner is not cooling, and you want to contact someone but it’s after 8 p.m. and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You might have heard that Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Please know that you can always call Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, 24/7 to help decide if an expert needs to come out right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are some cases where you should go ahead and call a professional.

Suspicious Sounds

There are a few reasons that your AC system might be making strange, shrieking noises. One common issue might be that the fan belt got loose. Standard maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes there’s an emergency and you need to call for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit could be making a loud, squeeling noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be hazardous. If a noise seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Unusual Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioning unit is usually a sign of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your air conditioning system smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts immediately for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, an issue with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is warm instead of cool, go ahead and call Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts, especially if there is extreme heat, so we can get a technician out to make sure you are safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
