What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure it is working right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s getting warm, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to get in touch someone but it’s nighttime and you aren’t convinced this is considered an AC emergency that comes with an upcharge. You have probably heard that Rob's Albertan Service Experts is available around the clock for emergency AC repair, but what actually constitutes a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And what will it cost?

Keep in mind, you can always call Rob's Albertan Service Experts, anytime of day, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, 24/7 to help decide if a technician needs to come to your home immediately or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.

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

Strange Sounds

There are many reasons that your AC system might be making strange, screaming noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt is loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens and you need to get in touch with a professional for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your air conditioning unit 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, turn off your AC system immediately and call Rob's Albertan Service Experts for an emergency AC repair appointment.

Strange Smells

A burning stench coming from your air conditioner is normally a sign of an electrical complication or a part has become so overheated that it’s really burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is definitely an emergency AC repair. Call Rob's Albertan Service Experts immediately for round the clock AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be kicking on, or you can’t feel any air blowing, this could be a sign that the cooling system has crashed. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your A/C system could have finally kicked the bucket. If the system isn’t producing air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Rob's Albertan Service Experts, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get someone out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having a functioning A/C in severe heat definitely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
