The weather is turning brisk in Newark and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get many of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners stating 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 travel through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of hazard and the smell will normally diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the smell 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 could be 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 crucial part of your life even during these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the occasion.
