The weather is getting colder in Marshalltown and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you start your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will travel through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually establish any sort of concern and the smell will usually be gone after a while. However, if the smell does not diminish after a short time, please notify one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become blocked. 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 important 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.
