When Should You Call Us for an AC Emergency?

Most modern air conditioning systems are reliable and can last a long time before giving you any trouble. However, like any other machine, an air conditioning system will eventually suffer from mechanical problems because of natural wear and tear. Some problems could be minor and do not need immediate intervention from expert professionals. However, it might be crucial to schedule emergency AC services in case the problem is severe.

The question is: How can you tell whether it is an AC emergency or if you can wait to address the problem?

The ability to identify the severity of a problem with your AC can be very useful. Not identifying major malfunctions can be serious and potentially dangerous. If you feel like you’re experiencing a need for AC repair in Phoenix, AZ that could constitute an emergency, you should contact our professionals immediately.

We will tell you about AC problems that you should consider as emergencies to help you determine when to call us.

When Should You Call Us for an AC Emergency?

Here are some of the instances when you should contact us for emergency AC services.

Complete System Breakdown

A complete breakdown is when your AC will not work at all, or is blowing warm air through your home. If your AC is not working, the first thing to check is the circuit breaker and thermostat. If both these things are working fine, the system should be working fine unless there is a severe problem with your AC.

If your AC does not work properly despite the thermostat and circuit breaker working, it is a situation in which you should schedule emergency AC services. The longer you leave the AC like this, the worse the problem can become.

Electrical Issues

If your air conditioning system has electrical problems, you should not wait for regular working hours to address them. If your AC is experiencing an electrical issue like creating a burning plastic smell, dimming or flickering lights in your home, or constantly tripping the breaker, calling experts to fix the problem immediately should be your top concern.

Electrical issues are not something you should attempt to fix yourself, and they cannot wait. Depending on the severity of the problem, electrical issues in your AC could be dangerous for everyone in the household.

Your AC Is Causing Water Damage

Air conditioners can start causing water damage due to clogged condensate drains or ice formation on coils. You should never ignore any water damage related to your air conditioner; schedule emergency services immediately to address the problem before it becomes worse.

Water damage can quickly spread to cause significant property damage. Excess water can lead to the development of mold infestations and attract pests in as little as 24 hours. The moisture can end up damaging the air conditioner itself, leading to even more expensive repairs.
