The weather is getting colder in Pacheco and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year 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 gathered inside your system. The first time you turn on 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 concern and the smell will usually diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not go away after a while, please call in one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten clogged. 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 perfect time.
