The weather is turning brisk in Franklin Lakes 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you turn on 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 hazard and the smell will normally diminish after a while. However, if the odor does not diminish after a while, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become blocked. This can cause your blower motor to get overused 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 in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our professionals will ensure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning odor.
