24 Hour Emergency Air Conditioner Repair Services in Boston, MA

It’s 95 degrees outside and your air conditioning suddenly stops blowing cold air—or worse, starts making strange sounds, leaking or burning. This could be an A/C emergency!

A malfunctioning A/C could cause a full system breakdown, or at worst a fire. Air conditioners cause approximately 20 deaths per year, according to the National Fire Protection Association. The likelihood of this happening is low if you service your appliance regularly. But do not ignore the warning signs.

If your air conditioning smells like it’s burning, emits a high shrieking sound, constantly cycles on and off or exhibits any other potentially hazardous signs, please call us immediately and do not attempt to fix it yourself. One of our A/C technicians will come to your home or business promptly to get your system fixed.

Severe heat can also be a hazard to your health, especially for vulnerable populations like seniors or anyone with severe allergies. Whatever the case, when you can’t wait, call Boston Standard Company for 24-hour emergency A/C repair. As temperatures rise, we’re on your side.

We’re The Company You Count On.
We’re available 24/7 to help you! Call now: (617) 288-2911

A/C Emergencies Should Only Be Handled by Professionals

Why You Shouldn’t Try to Fix an A/C Emergency Yourself

Sometimes, you just need your air conditioning to work—immediately. You may be tempted to troubleshoot your A/C unit to try and fix the problem yourself, but if you have any sort of serious emergency, DO NOT attempt a DIY solution. This is for your own safety. Our HVAC professionals are trained, licensed and insured with years of experience so you don’t have to worry about the dangers of handling a faulty system yourself. At worst, you could be electrocuted or cause a fire hazard. You could damage your system or your property. Or you could just end up wasting time and money. Leave the hassle to us! We’ll get your A/C back online quickly.

If you notice any alarming issues like shrieking sounds, pools of liquid or a burning smell, call Boston Standard Company and an A/C emergency technician will assist you immediately, 24/7.

These guys are amazing. They arrived on-time, were polite/friendly, and finished quickly. Given the current state of things, they provided no contact service, work face masks, and gloves. Excellent service!
Very professional plumber group. Every step, from setting up an appointment, to the job itself was executed at 5 star levels. Install was thorough and the follow up after the job included a specific write up with many pictures to confirm findings. Best option in town.

I have had great luck with the plumbers sent to my home. Not only did Elvis m. and Frank M. take time to explain everything they, like the other people in your company were friendly and cooperative and worked fast and efficiently. Your workers are your strongest value to your company.

An A/C emergency may occur when a unit emits a smell of burning (and may be at risk of catching on fire), when there seem to be serious electrical issues when there could be a refrigerant leak, or simply if the A/C system stops working suddenly in severe temperatures.

There are many reasons why an A/C unit could have suddenly stopped working. You could have faulty wiring, low refrigerant, a frozen coil or a problem with a fan motor, compressor or thermostat, among other possible issues. If the unit is old, it could also simply have reached the end of its lifespan.

In some cases, an A/C unit can cause a fire. Never keep flammable items near the system. Clean your system regularly to prevent buildup of flammable materials inside the unit. Stay on top of your regular maintenance so an A/C professional can find any fault parts or system issues early on before they become dangerous.
