The weather is turning brisk in Alice and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a great deal 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected 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 danger and the smell will typically be gone after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not decrease after a while, please inform one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be blocked. This can cause your blower motor to become overworked 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 these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our experts will make sure your system is running safely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning smell.
