The weather is turning brisk in Laurel and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get a great deal of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners expressing that they smell something when their air conditioner turns on for the first time in a while. It’s likely that your air conditioner hasn’t been running for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected inside your system. The first time you start your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will travel through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of hazard and the smell will usually be gone after a little bit. However, if the scent does not decrease after a short time, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become clogged. This can cause your blower motor to get overused and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
Your air conditioner is going to be an key part of your life even during in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our professionals will make sure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning smell.
