The weather is turning brisk in Carson City and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get many 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated 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 typically diminish after a while. However, if the odor does not decrease after a bit, 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 obstructed. 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 this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our pros will be sure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning odor.
