What Qualifies as an AC Emergency?

Some air conditioner malfunctions are annoying, but they can wait for regular business hours to receive attention. Other times, you need AC repair immediately to restore comfort and safety on a toasty summer afternoon. Here are some common reasons customers call AAA Heating & Air Conditioning for emergency AC repair:

  • The air conditioner won’t turn on: If you can’t cool your house because of an HVAC failure, you have an emergency. First, make sure no circuit breakers are tripped and that the outdoor condensing unit is plugged in. If these troubleshooting tips have no effect, call our professionals to take a look.
  • The AC runs but isn’t cooling: Before you call for an emergency AC repair, make sure the thermostat is set to “auto,” not “on.” If this doesn’t help, there could be something wrong with the compressor, or the refrigerant charge could be low, problems our AC repair techs can quickly diagnose.
  • Strange noises or odd smells: After years of running your air conditioner, you know what it sounds like by now. Unusual banging, squealing, or ticking noises coming from the outdoor unit or air handler could mean a problem is developing. Similarly, musty smells could indicate harmful mold growth in the AC unit, and a burning odor could warn of an electrical problem. Have these issues addressed before you turn on the air conditioner again.
  • Short-cycling: When the AC runs briefly before turning back off, this could indicate a clogged filter or faulty thermostat. Short-cycling usually requires a professional to take a look. Our team will restore proper function so your AC can do its job.

AC Emergency FAQs

Is it an emergency if my AC isn't producing cool air?

The most common cause of warm air is a low refrigerant level. Your refrigerant acts as a heat transfer medium. Leaks can change the pressure balance in your unit and place expensive components at risk, so always treat warm air as an emergency. Running your unit in this state could lead to a compressor failure, so it’s best to turn off your unit and wait for your repair crew.

What should I check before calling for an emergency repair?

A surprising number of homes report an AC failure when they really have a power outage or a tripped circuit, so make sure there’s electrical power running into your AC. The switch near your compressor should also be on. Next, check that your thermostat is correctly set and that its batteries are still charged. Finally, make sure your air filters are clean and your drain line isn’t clogged. A waterlogged drain pan could indicate a blockage.

I've called for emergency service. Now what?

An overheated unit can render itself irreparable, so it’s best not to run your AC while you wait for your repair team. Turn off your unit and follow any advice provided by the HVAC company you’ve contacted.

If my AC breaks down, can it be repaired or will it need to be replaced?

Most air conditioners last somewhere between 10 and 20 years. When they reach the end of that period, frequent repairs will become a regular part of your life. The cost of your repair will determine whether you need a replacement. As a rule of thumb, if your unit has reached the end of its service life, it’s better to replace than to keep piling on repairs.
