The weather is turning brisk in Menomonie and western Wisconsin and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a great deal 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated inside your system. The first time you start 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 hazard and the smell will normally diminish after a while. However, if the scent does not decrease after a while, please inform one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten 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 key part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will make sure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
