The weather is turning brisk in Erie and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a great deal of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners declaring 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 activate 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 present any sort of concern and the smell will typically go away after a short amount of time. However, if the smell does not diminish after a bit, please call in one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become obstructed. 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 key part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our professionals will make sure your system is working securely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
