What constitutes emergency HVAC repair needs? Use this guide to assist you so you know for sure.

Extreme cold or heat and HVAC issues

Is it very hot or very cold out and you have a heater or AC unit that isn't working? This can be an emergency HVAC repair situation if your home has children or very elderly people living inside, or if you have to keep pets at a certain temperature or you have medications in your home you have to keep temperature controlled. As extreme temperatures take their toll, you could be in real danger or at risk for injury to your health, which very much constitutes emergency HVAC repair in some situations.

HVAC system on fire or smoking

Is your HVAC system on fire or smoking or otherwise causing lots of issues to your home? You should immediately turn your HVAC system off and check into emergency HVAC repair. The efforts you make to get your system back on track without causing injury to your home or people in your home will be well worth the emergency service fees you get for having your emergency HVAC system repairs done.

HVAC system not working at all

Whether or not you have a true HVAC emergency, is dependent on several factors, including who is living in your home with you. However, as a general rule, if you have people living in your home that would be at health risk if the HVAC system doesn't work at all, then you can have your situation prioritized over other clients as an emergency need.

You'll have to explain your HVAC problem to your specialist over the phone so they can determine if you have a heating emergency or not. In the end, it's up to you whether you have an HVAC emergency, and if you are willing to pay the emergency repair fees. Then you may be able to have an HVAC specialist come to your home either immediately or outside normal working hours to bring you and your family relief. Your HVAC system should be inspected regularly for safety.
