The weather is cooling down in Crestview and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get many 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected inside your system. The first time you start 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 concern and the smell will normally diminish after a while. However, if the odor does not decrease after a while, please inform one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be 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 important part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion.
