What's an AC Emergency?

May 13, 2016

Summer weather on its way. You may have already turned on your air conditioning system to make sure the system is functioning right. But what if it’s not? It’s hot, your air conditioning system is not working, 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 may have heard that Matz-Rightway is available around the clock for emergency air conditioner repair, but what actually counts as a 24 hour AC repair emergency? And how much extra does it cost?

Please know that you can always call Matz-Rightway, no matter what time, every day of the year. Our customer service team is available live, around the clock to help decide if a technician needs to come out immediately or if it’s something that will be okay to wait until morning.

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

Squeeling Sounds

There are multiple reasons that your air conditioning equipment might be making weird, screaming noises. One common situation might be that the fan belt got loose. Proper maintenance can help avoid this situation, but sometimes life happens 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 functioning at a high level of pressure, which can be unsafe. If a sound seems excessive, turn off your air conditioner immediately and call Matz-Rightway for an emergency AC repair service.

Stinky Smells

A burning odor coming from your AC system is usually a sign of an electrical complication or a component has become so overheated that it’s actually burning. If your air conditioner smells like it’s burning, that is a definite emergency AC repair. Call Matz-Rightway as soon as possible for 24/7 AC repair.

No Air Flow

If your air conditioner doesn’t seem to be turning on, or you can’t feel any air coming out, this could be an indication that the cooling system has crashed. The culprit could be a poorly calibrated thermostat, a complication with the blower, or your air conditioning unit could have finally kicked the bucket. If the air conditioner isn’t generating air flow, or the air that’s blowing is too hot, go ahead and call Matz-Rightway, especially if there is extreme weather, so we can get an expert out to make sure your home is safe and comfortable. Not having air conditioning in severe temperatures absolutely constitutes a 24 hour AC repair.
