What's an AC Emergency?
Heat has arrived. You’ve most likely already booted up your air conditioning system to make sure the system is running right. But what happens if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is acting up, and you want to contact someone but it’s late and you aren’t sure if this is considered an AC emergency that that is going to cost more. You might have heard that Orangutan Home Services is available all day every day for emergency air conditioning repair, but what is actually considered a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much will is cost?
Keep in mind, you can always call Orangutan Home Services, day or night, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, at all times to help decide if an expert needs to come out right away or if it’s something you could wait out until morning.
When trying to check the severity by yourself, here are some situations where you should go ahead and call an expert.
There are multiple reasons that your air conditioner might be making unusual, screeching noises. One common problem might be that the fan belt became loose. Seasonal maintenance can help avoid this problem, but sometimes life happens and you need to have an expert come out for an AC repair appointment. Another reason your AC system could be making a loud, shrieking noise is that the compressor is working at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If the sound seems excessive, shut down your air conditioning unit immediately and call Orangutan Home Services for an emergency AC repair service.
A burning odor coming from your air conditioner is usually a sign of an electrical problem or a piece has become so overheated that it’s seriously burning. If your A/C smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Orangutan Home Services immediately for 24/7 AC repair.
No Air Flow
If your air conditioning unit doesn’t seem to be running at all, or you can’t feel any air flowing, this could be a symptom that the cooling system has malfunctioned. The reason could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit 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 Orangutan Home Services, particularly if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having cool air in severe weather absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
