Other times, however, it truly is an emergency, particularly if you have occupants in your home with special needs that can’t go more than a few hours without cooling. Keep reading for some of the most common emergency calls professional HVAC technicians receive.
There are a couple different reasons you might hear a screeching sound coming from your AC system, one of which is far more serious than the other.

Any type of burning smell coming from your air conditioner should be an immediate cause for alarm. Typically, this means you are experiencing an electrical problem of some kind, and something has heated up to the point that it’s melted. It’s essential that you shut off your AC until a professional can get in and take a look.
