What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Heat has arrived. You have probably already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure everything is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioner is on the fritz, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Norrell Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Norrell Service Experts, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service agents are available live, around the clock to help decide if an expert needs to come check it out ASAP or if it’s something that can wait until morning.

When trying to evaluate the severity by yourself, here are a couple situations where you should go ahead and call an expert.

Suspicious Sounds

There are several reasons that your AC system might be making weird, shrieking noises. One common issue may be that the fan belt got loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes things happen 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, screeching noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, shut off your AC system immediately and call Norrell Service Experts for an emergency AC repair job.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your air conditioning unit is normally a symptom 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 Norrell Service Experts immediately for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be a sign that the cooling system has failed. The cause could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally bit the dust. If the air conditioner isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is not cool, go ahead and call Norrell Service Experts, particularly if there are extreme temperatures, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
