Situations That Count as an Emergency 

Sometimes AC repairs can wait for business hours. However, there are situations that are considered an emergency. In these instances, call American Vintage Home immediately to get the service you need. 

Extreme Heat

While much of Chicago’s summers can be mild, we can still experience serious heat waves. When temperatures rise to the 90s and above, it’s unsafe to be without cooling in your home. 

Health Issues

If anyone in your home has chronic health issues that make them more susceptible to heat stroke, an AC breakdown is considered an emergency. This includes those with heart disease, poor circulation, and certain prescription drug use.

Resident Ages

Children and the elderly tend to suffer more without cooling. Pay close attention to signs of heat stroke, including confusion, weakness, dizziness, and rapid heartbeat.

Signs That You Need Emergency Repairs

An air conditioner breakdown isn’t the only time that you may need repairs quickly. Other issues with your unit could constitute an emergency, so it’s important to respond to them quickly. Look for warning signs that your AC needs immediate attention, including:

  • Unusual noises
  • Blowing warm air
  • Power cycling
  • Leaks near the unit
  • Indoor humidity
  • Foul odors
  • Poor airflow
  • Tripped breakers
