The weather is turning brisk in Arlington 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated inside your system. The first time you turn on your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of hazard and the smell will typically be gone after a little bit. However, if the odor does not go away after a short time, please inform one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench 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 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. Our professionals will make sure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning scent.
