The weather is cooling down in Mobile and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get many of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners expressing 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 using 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 present any sort of hazard and the smell will typically go away after a while. However, if the scent does not diminish after a bit, 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 get overused 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 regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will make sure your system is operating securely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
