The weather is turning brisk in Dayton and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a great deal 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 running for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected 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 concern and the smell will typically diminish after a little bit. However, if the smell does not go away after a short time, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become clogged. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary 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 occasion. Our pros will make sure your system is working safely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning scent.
