The weather is turning brisk in Branchville and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a lot 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected inside your system. The first time you activate your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually establish any sort of hazard and the smell will typically be gone after a little bit. However, if the scent does not diminish after a bit, please call in one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be obstructed. This can cause your blower motor to become overworked 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 these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular 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 worry about a burning scent. Give us a call at 862-345-6896 to arrange an appointment with us.
