Why Does Your Air Conditioner Smell When You Turn It On?

The weather is cooling down in Abilene 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 declaring 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 turn on 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 establish any sort of concern and the smell will typically go away after a while. However, if the odor does not go away after a short time, please call in one of our pros.

Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become blocked. This can cause your blower motor to get overused 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. Our professionals will ensure your system is running safely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning odor.
