The weather is getting colder in Rockford and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a lot 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 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 danger and the smell will normally diminish after a little bit. However, if the scent does not diminish after a short time, please notify one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be obstructed. 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 crucial 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 experts will make sure your system is running safely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning smell.
