Emergency HVAC Services

Furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps, and boilers can go down at the most opportune moments. They can fail on a cold winter’s night or in the middle of a blisteringly hot summer’s day. When they fail to operate as required, your home can become an uncomfortable place rather quickly.

Our certified HVAC technicians can quickly identify the problem and complete the necessary repairs. When you contact us, we will do our best to determine the problem over the phone. This allows our technicians to consider possible causes for the failure, and it helps ensure that they arrive at your home or business with the correct tools and replacement parts for your specific unit.

Signs you need emergency HVAC services include:

  • A “rotten egg” smell is emanating from your furnace. This can indicate a natural gas leak, and you should exit the home and contact the gas company immediately if you smell natural gas. It is advisable to do this before contacting an HVAC technician.
  • Pilot lights that won’t stay lit or burn with a yellow or orange flame, rather than a blue one.
  • Strange noises coming from your furnace, boiler, or air conditioner. These include squeaks, squeals, and grinding noises, which can indicate impending component failure.
  • Reduced hot/cold air distribution throughout your home or business.
  • Burning smells such as burnt rubber or plastic.
  • Pooled water at the base of your HVAC systems or excessive condensation on the sides of air conditioners, heat pumps, or furnaces.
  • Inability to adjust HVAC function from the thermostat.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are plumbing emergencies?

A plumbing emergency usually refers to any sort of plumbing issue where your home or health is at risk of damage due to leaks, backflow, flooding, contamination of clean water, etc. But emergencies are sometimes in the eye of the beholder, so you’ll need to make a judgment call on whether your situation constitutes an emergency. For example, if you only have one toilet and you lose the use of that single toilet, nothing’s in immediate danger but your house has become unlivable.

How do you handle a plumbing emergency?

Your priority in any plumbing emergency should be to shut off the flow of water so the problem can’t get worse. Depending on where the problem is, this might mean shutting off a local valve, like the knob near the base of your toilet, or it might mean cutting off water entirely at the main. You’ll want to open up drains and fixtures to empty out water in safe locations if you’re still leaking elsewhere, and you may want to contact the water company before your plumber. Don’t try to fix anything yourself unless you know what you’re doing.

What is considered an HVAC emergency?

HVAC emergencies rarely put your home or health at risk, unless they involve a combustion-based heating system and you have leaking gas or combustion byproducts that aren’t venting correctly — though obviously these are much more serious emergencies and require different steps, such as evacuating your house while professionals from your gas company deal with the problem. Most HVAC emergencies are simply situations outside of normal hours where you can’t endure the weather reasonably for any length of time, i.e. the height of summer or depths of winter.

Is a broken air conditioner an emergency?

If it’s hot outside and outside of normal hours, or you need immediate service, then yes, a broken air conditioner can constitute an HVAC emergency. If you’ve ever tried to get through a hot night without any air conditioning, you understand how miserable it can make you — and losing sleep can have a serious impact on the next day, including putting you at increased risk of accidents and injury!

What is a heating emergency?

A heating emergency can refer to two different things: a situation where you need your heat back on quickly because it’s cold enough to be outright dangerous without heat (or at least miserable), or a situation where your heating system poses a threat to life and property due to leaks, improper combustion, or poor ventilation. The former requires a call to an emergency HVAC technician; the latter more often requires leaving your home and contacting your gas company.
