Common HVAC Emergencies And What To Do

ICE Air Conditioning & Plumbing is the leading emergency HVAC repair company in the Las Vegas Valley area, serving Las Vegas, Henderson, Paradise and Spring Valley.

Here’s a roundup of the most common emergency HVAC repairs that our customers need.

Total Failure Of The HVAC System

Won’t your HVAC system switch on at all?

This could be dangerous in the baking summer heat or on a cold winter night. Call us to get a free estimate for emergency furnace replacement or repairs, or to check out your A/C.

A Burning Smell

Stop using your heating or cooling system right now.

You can get a burning smell from both furnaces and A/C. In either of these systems, burning smells can point to a serious fault with the blower motor and you’ll need emergency HVAC repair. If there’s a short anywhere then this is a serious fire risk.

When was the last time you had your filters and ducts cleaned? If it was a long time ago, they may be blocked and that’s what’s causing the burning smell. Get in touch because we also offer emergency air duct cleaning depending on our technician’s diagnosis of the problem.

I Can Smell Gas

Leave the building immediately without touching any electrical or gas-powered equipment. This means light switches, furnaces and so on. Don’t open the windows as this can spread the problem. Then call your gas company.

Next, call ICE Air Conditioning & Plumbing, because we offer 24-hour emergency HVAC services to assess the problem in your home straight away. We offer emergency furnace replacement plus maintenance so you won’t have to go through that hair-raising experience again.

Refrigerant Leaking From A/C Unit

Refrigerant leaks mean your system might stop completely, or even worse, leak onto other electrical equipment and cause a fire hazard.

Also bear in mind that it was only in 2020 that Freon became illegal to produce as a refrigerant in the US. So if you have an older A/C system that still runs on Freon, it’s a highly toxic substance.

Refrigerant leaks aren’t something homeowners can deal with themselves so you need to call in an expert.

Clogged Condensate Drain In The A/C

This might mean your A/C doesn’t run at all. Which could be better than the other option which is overflowing and causing liquid damage to your home. In either case, you need a professional for emergency HVAC repair.

How Can I Prevent HVAC Emergencies?

When you get regular maintenance on your heating and A/C, the chance of HVAC emergencies is very low.

We can set you up with a regular maintenance schedule so that your system will run safely and reliably, whenever you need it.
