The weather is getting colder in Florissant and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year 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 establish any sort of concern and the smell will typically diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not decrease after a bit, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten blocked. 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 these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will ensure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent. Give us a call at 314-325-7552 to arrange an appointment with us.
