Emergency Air Conditioning Services

Because you probably don’t use your air conditioner all year round, you may sometimes encounter some odd behavior from your unit that leaves you asking: “Do I need to call for emergency AC repair?” Look out for the following signs you need emergency AC services.

  • Unusual noises: Because most people don’t understand the inner workings of their AC systems, they may be tempted to ignore strange sounds like rattling or hissing. Loud operation or odd sounds can indicate a serious issue, like air getting stuck in coolant lines, issues with the motor or compressor, or leaks that must be addressed.
  • Ice on the system: Clogged filters, leaks, or grime buildup are all potential causes of ice buildup on your unit. The problem must be addressed quickly to prevent damage to the whole system.
  • Smells in vents: Aside from being unpleasant to deal with, HVAC professionals should investigate any noticeable smell emanating from your vents. It could be a symptom of debris or grime buildup or even dead wildlife.

If any of these issues crop up with your cooling system, call Andreas at 610-377-5261 to get an expert technician out as soon as possible to make sure they don’t cause further damage.

Emergency Heating Services

Getting stuck without heat is an inconvenience, but some situations call for emergency services no matter what time of day or night. Don’t hesitate to contact Andreas immediately for these symptoms.

  • Rotten egg smell from furnace: This is an indicator of a natural gas leak, one of the most serious problems that can occur. Vacate the home immediately, contact your gas company, then call a qualified emergency service like Andreas to repair the unit.
  • Noisy operation: If your furnace, boiler, or heat pump are making noises, such as grinding, squeaking, or squealing, you may be facing imminent unit failure that can compromise your whole heating system.
  • Burning smells: Any time you smell burnt plastic or rubber, you’re facing a potential fire hazard as well as system failure. For your safety, it’s best to switch off heating units and contact an emergency heating repair service.

At Andreas, we understand how terrifying it can be to experience sudden issues with your heating system, especially if they threaten the safety of your home and family. That’s why we are proud to dispatch qualified technicians to your home day or night, every single day of the year.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are plumbing emergencies?

A plumbing emergency usually refers to any 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, nothing is in immediate danger if you only have one toilet and you lose the use of that single toilet, but it makes your house unlivable.

How do you handle a plumbing emergency?

Your priority in any plumbing emergency should be to shut off the water flow so the problem can’t worsen. 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 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 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, such as during the height of summer or depths of winter.

Is a broken air conditioner an emergency?

If it’s hot out and your air conditioner breaks 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, or at least miserable, without heat, 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, while the latter more often requires leaving your home and contacting your gas company.
