Whether the HVAC system in your San Diego home is nearing the end of its life or is just a few years old, it is a complex system with many components, and even minor problems can lead to a system failure, especially if it has not been properly maintained in the past. Often, when the system does break down, it will be after normal business hours, and if the problem is severe enough, you may need to call an emergency repair service.

When to Request Emergency HVAC Service in San Diego County
Sometimes it can be difficult to determine if you truly need emergency HVAC service, or if the problem can wait until normal business hours, reducing your repair costs.
Generally, if your system is having only minor problems, such as a noisy fan belt, uneven temperatures, increased energy usage or something similar, repairs can wait for a more opportune time. If your system is showing signs of a major problem, however, or if you are unsure, it may be wise to call in a professional immediately.
If not addressed, such issues could cause irreparable harm to your system, increasing your repair costs, or they could create a safety hazard for your family or your home. If you notice any of the following, call a 24 HVAC repair service as soon as possible:
- Screeching, whining, or grinding sounds coming from the compressor, blower motor, or system fans
- Unusual smoke or chemical smells
- Frozen coils or refrigerant leaks on a heat pump or air conditioner
- Yellow flames instead of blue on a furnace
- Combustion gases entering your home from the furnace or its flue
- Alarms indicating high carbon monoxide levels
- Sparking, arcing or melted electrical connections
If you need emergency HVAC repairs, do not hesitate to call our team at Thompson Heating & Air Conditioning. We will work quickly to diagnose and repair your problem, allowing you to rest assured that your system is safe and operating properly.
