When is AC Repair Considered an Emergency? 

Share This Post

Here in Southern California, temperatures can easily reach beyond 100 degrees on any given day. For this reason, a working air conditioner goes beyond mere comfort and helps ensure the most vulnerable populations stay healthy and cool.

If your AC goes out, it can quickly become an emergency. If you are considering whether to call our all-hours Anaheim troubleshooting line, consider some of the following frequently asked questions about HVAC emergencies. 

Is it an Emergency if I Have No Heat? 

In Southern California, we often discuss the necessity of air conditioning. However, during January and February, it is not unheard of for temperatures to dip below freezing. For the ill, infirm, elderly or very young, this can very quickly cause exacerbation of sickness or fever.  

If the lack of heat is causing physical or emotional distress for the members of the household, it is time to summon emergency AC repair from our team of experienced technicians. We promise to get to you as quickly as possible and offer a cost-effective solution to your lack of heat to ensure all members of the home are safe and healthy.

When is Lack of AC Considered an Emergency? 

Each year across California, as many as 16,000 people are treated in emergency departments for the effects of searing heat and heat-related illnesses. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include any of the following: 

  • Sweating or weakness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Confusion
  • Dark-colored urine or heavy sweating
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle cramping
  • Rapid heartbeat

Once heat exhaustion becomes more severe – known as “heat stroke” – the situation can rapidly become dire. Specifically, heatstroke involves symptoms including confusion, rapid heartbeat, and unconsciousness.

Major Malfunctions

Sometimes, a malfunctioning air conditioning or heating system can cause potential damage to the home. If an air conditioner is not properly maintained – or the air filter is not timely replaced – this can lead to backup in the system and potential overflow of condensation or debris. Similarly, malfunctioning wiring or aging ductwork could present a fire hazard that may lead to catastrophic damage. 

At Home Comfort USA, our technicians can diagnose and quickly repair any evidence of malfunctioning AC or heating systems. We work around the clock to keep our customers comfortable and safe and promise to offer polite and courteous service along the way.
