The weather is getting colder in Cape Coral and we’ll probably 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated inside your system. The first time you turn on 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 present any sort of hazard and the smell will typically be gone after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not decrease after a while, 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 may have become 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 in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our professionals will ensure your system is working safely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning odor.
