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 do you do if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is not working, and you want to call someone but it’s late and you aren’t confident this is considered an AC emergency that you’ll be charged more for. You may have heard that Barlow Service Experts is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Please know that you can always call Barlow 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 to your home right away or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

When trying to check the severity without an expert, here are a few situations where you should go ahead and call us.

Squeeling Sounds

There are many reasons that your air conditioner might be making strange, screaming noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt became loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, 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, shrieking noise is that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Barlow Service Experts for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning smell coming from your AC system is generally an indication of an electrical malfunction or a part has become so overheated that it’s truly burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Barlow Service Experts right away for 24 hour AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has failed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioner could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t providing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Barlow Service Experts, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get a technician out to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures for sure constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
