Why Does Your Air Conditioner Smell When You Turn It On?

Repair

The weather is turning brisk in Mobile and we’ll 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 running 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 journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of concern and the smell will typically diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not go away after a while, please notify one of our professionals.

Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be obstructed. 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 crucial part of your life even during in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our experts will ensure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning odor.
