The weather is getting colder in Libertyville and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a lot 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 collected inside your system. The first time you start 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 pose any sort of concern and the smell will typically diminish after a little bit. However, if the scent does not go away after a short time, please call in one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench 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 important part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our professionals will ensure your system is running smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning odor.
