The weather is cooling down in Tomball and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 travel through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually establish any sort of danger and the smell will usually be gone after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not diminish after a while, please call in 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 run harder than necessary 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 in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our experts will ensure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
