The weather is turning brisk in Macon and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a lot 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 running for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you turn on your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of hazard and the smell will normally diminish after a little bit. However, if the odor does not decrease after a bit, please notify one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be 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 this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will ensure your system is working securely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
