The weather is turning brisk in McHenry and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated 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 establish any sort of danger and the smell will usually go away after a little bit. However, if the smell does not decrease after a while, please call in 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 become overworked 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 last chance. Our professionals will ensure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning odor.
