The weather is cooling down in Rock Hill and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 activate your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of concern and the smell will normally diminish after a while. However, if the smell does not diminish after a bit, please notify one of our pros.
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 run harder than necessary 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 routine air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our experts will make sure your system is working securely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent.
