The weather is getting colder in Magnolia and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered 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 pose any sort of danger and the smell will normally go away after a while. However, if the scent does not decrease after a bit, please notify one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become clogged. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary 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 these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our pros will be sure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
