Do you want to know what sucks about the HVAC industry? So many homeowners don’t believe in 24/7 emergency HVAC service, and thus, so many HVAC professionals don’t offer it. There’s always been the sentiment that a problem with your air conditioner while the temperature is soaring above 100 ° on a Saturday is just going to have to wait until a convenient time for it to be fixed. The problem is that air conditioning problems never occur when they’re “convenient.”
Today, we’re going to talk about what constitutes an HVAC emergency. Our company offers 24/7 services for AC repair in Plano, TX, but the important part we’d like to address is when homeowners should take advantage of this service.
Why do we offer it? When should I call for emergency repairs? Now you’re starting to ask the right questions, and we’d be happy to answer them.
What Is an Emergency?
Air conditioning isn’t just about having the luxury of cool and comfortable air when you live in Texas. It can be the difference between a miserable day and a great day, which is an important distinction for us to make. That miserable day, when your air conditioner is suffering from problems like a refrigerant leak, can even get worse depending on how expensive the problem is to repair. That’s why it’s the least we can do to offer 24/7 services.
When you’re dealing with scorching hot temperatures, an expensive repair, and problems that could get worse if they’re not addressed immediately, you don’t want to wait for a professional to help you. Emergency services are meant to provide help when you need it, as opposed to help when it’s convenient to us and our schedule. This can make a big difference in the long run.
When Should You Call for Help?
This is an important point since homeowners can often call us too often, or not often enough, and we’d like to talk about the sweet spot of emergency services that should be sought after.
If you’re dealing with a problem that’s just a minor inconvenience, like an uncomfortable noise, or your AC lacking effectiveness, these could be serious problems. However, are they worth keeping you up in the middle of the night while you wait for the help of an on-call HVAC professional? They might not be.
However, if your air conditioner has just shut down, or is making a loud grinding noise that is disrupting your life, stressing or scaring your family, or has caused a circuit to blow and you’re having trouble operating your electrical devices in your home, those are problems that really cannot wait. The longer you wait for help in these situations, the worse your life might be, and your health or comfort might suffer.
