The weather is turning brisk in Pella and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 operating 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 move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of danger and the smell will typically go away after a little bit. However, if the scent does not diminish after a bit, please inform one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten blocked. 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 key part of your life even during these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will ensure your system is operating safely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning smell. Give us a call at 641-628-3621 to set up an appointment with us.
