The weather is getting colder in New Castle and we’ll likely 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered 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 present any sort of danger and the smell will usually go away after a little bit. However, if the scent does not go away after a short time, 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 may have become blocked. 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 crucial part of your life even during in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will make sure your system is running safely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning scent.
