The weather is turning brisk in Columbus and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a lot 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 running 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 hazard and the smell will normally diminish after a little bit. However, if the smell does not decrease after a while, please call in one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become 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 important part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our experts will ensure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning smell.
