The weather is turning brisk in Georgetown and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get many 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 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 pose any sort of concern and the smell will normally go away after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not diminish after a while, please inform one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be blocked. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
