Some homeowners may wonder what constitutes an AC emergency. With the temperatures slowly rising in Colorado Springs, the last thing you want to deal with is a faulty air conditioning unit. Even worse, should your AC unit completely break on a hot day, this can be dangerous for you and your home. Here are some points to consider if you think your situation is an emergency.
Your AC Unit Breaks on a Hot Day
Your situation is considered an emergency if the temperature is over 90 degrees Fahrenheit and your AC system completely breaks down without fixing it. It’s imperative that you stay out of the heat and contact an HVAC company immediately so they can address the problem. If you have children or loved ones with physical conditions aggravated by excessive heat, you must seek help immediately so no one becomes sick from the heat.
Your AC Unit Is Leaking
If you notice anything leaking from your AC unit, you have an emergency that needs to be dealt with. When left untreated or ignored, this can quickly become dangerous for everyone in the home. No matter if your AC unit is leaking water, sparks, or smoke, it’s important that you call an HVAC company for help.
If your AC unit is causing your breaker to trip constantly or it’s causing a weird electrical smell, you have a situation that needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. Electrical issues are expensive to repair when left alone and can damage both people and your home.
