What is an AC Emergency?
Florida is famous for its heat and humidity. And while we love the tropical setting, it is important to be able to seek refuge in our air cooled homes when the heat gets too bad. But if your AC isn’t cooling down your house, it can put you at risk of overheating.

Of course you want to check to make sure the power source to your AC hasn’t gone out. But then you want to check the following:

❏ Strange Noises
This can be caused by a number of reasons, including loose parts. But it could also be the compressor or a refrigerant leak.
❏ Strange Smells
Your AC unit should never give off an odor. If it smells like it is burning, a part may be overheating.
❏ No Air Flow
There are multiple issues that could be at the root of this issue.

With so many variables at play, you want to let an emergency AC repair expert take a look to prevent any damage from getting worse, which can create a dangerous situation. So if you check any of the boxes above, turn off power to your unit and call Amteks emergency line.

Ways to Keep Cool Until We Get There

While you are waiting for your emergency AC repair there are things you can do to help prevent overheating.
Block any sun
Pull blinds, curtains, and drapes to prevent the sun’s rays from heating up the air in your home. Use poster boards or paper to block windows if needed.
Fans create a wind-chill effect
Ceiling fans should run counter-clockwise. Any portable or box fans should be placed around the house to create air flow. Place bowls of ice in front of your fans for additional cooling.

Keep appliances off
Using appliances will heat the air, so avoid using appliances if possible.
Drink water
Hydration prevents overheating, so make sure everyone in the home keeps drinking.

Any members of the household that have a hard time with heat should be brought somewhere with air… a friend’s house, the mall, the movies, etc. until Amtek can diagnose and fix the issue.
