The weather is getting colder in Bossier City and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually establish any sort of danger and the smell will typically be gone after a little bit. However, if the smell does not diminish after a short time, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be clogged. 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 annual air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our experts will ensure your system is operating securely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
