The weather is cooling down in Ellsworth and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a great deal 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 accumulated inside your system. The first time you turn on 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 danger and the smell will typically diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not go away after a short time, please notify one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be clogged. 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 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 occasion.
