The weather is getting colder in Elk River and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 operating 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 journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of concern and the smell will usually diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the smell does not diminish after a short time, please notify one of our experts.
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 become overworked 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 annual air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our experts will be sure your system is operating safely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
