The weather is getting colder in Hodgenville and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 turn on 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 present any sort of hazard and the smell will usually go away after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not go away after a bit, 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 become overworked 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 regular air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our experts will ensure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning odor.
