The weather is turning brisk in Sandpoint and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get many of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners expressing 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 start 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 establish any sort of hazard and the smell will usually diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not diminish after a bit, please call in one of our professionals.
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 crucial part of your life even during these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time.
