The weather is turning brisk in Phoenix and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year 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 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 concern and the smell will normally be gone after a little bit. However, if the scent does not diminish after a while, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become blocked. 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 regular air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our pros will be sure your system is running smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning odor. Give us a call at 602-832-7808 to arrange an appointment with us.
