The weather is getting colder in Mount Pleasant and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get many of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners declaring 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 move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of hazard and the smell will usually go away after a little bit. However, if the odor does not diminish after a short time, please inform one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten clogged. 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 crucial part of your life even during in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion.
