When to Call for Emergency AC Repair in Columbia Missouri
You can never tell when an air conditioner is going to run into trouble, no matter how old or new it is. We are due for another scorcher of a summer here in Missouri, and any kind of breakdown needs a swift response. The good news is that we offer emergency AC repair 24/7, so we can be there for you no matter when the trouble arises…even on holidays. But when is an emergency call necessary? We’ll come no matter what, but before you consider it a 5 alarm fire, here’s some things to think about…
How Warm Is It Outside?
An old fashioned heat wave in our area can be unbearable, and even in the middle of the night, you may need to run the system. If you can’t keep your house reasonably cool with alternative methods, such as opening windows and running fans, then it’s time to call A1 Columbia Plumbing. On the other hand, if the temperatures are more bearable, and you have a viable alternative, you might want just get some sleep and call us in the morning.
How Long Do You Have to Wait?
A breakdown at 3:00 AM on a weekday doesn’t normally require a long wait: you can likely get one of our repair technicians to look at it during normal business hours shortly thereafter. But what if the breakdown takes place early Saturday morn during a sweltering three-day weekend? That’s something you can’t afford to wait on, and should likely prompt an emergency call asap. Remember, we work holidays and weekends, no matter what.
Are There At-Risk Family Members?
If you have family members in the house who are sensitive to the heat — the elderly, for example or newborn infants — it’s probably best not to take chances. Call in an emergency repair team from A1 Columbia Plumbing the moment you detect a problem.
Don’t try and DIY if things are completely broken down. It may just exacerbate the problem. We are more than willing to come out and make things right…
