The weather is turning brisk in Moline and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a lot 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 using 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 move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of hazard and the smell will normally go away after a while. However, if the scent does not go away after a bit, please call in one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become clogged. This can cause your blower motor to get overused 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 last chance. Our experts will be sure your system is running securely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning odor.
