The weather is cooling down in Crystal and Twin Cities and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get many of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners stating 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you turn on your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually establish any sort of hazard and the smell will typically diminish after a little bit. However, if the odor does not go away after a bit, please call in one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become obstructed. 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 important part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our professionals will be sure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning smell.
