The weather is cooling down in Murrieta 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 stating 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 collected inside your system. The first time you activate 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 present any sort of hazard and the smell will usually be gone after a little bit. However, if the odor does not diminish after a while, please inform one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become clogged. 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 these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will make sure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning smell.
