The weather is getting colder in Tucker and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a lot 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated inside your system. The first time you activate 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 present any sort of concern and the smell will typically diminish after a little bit. However, if the scent does not diminish after a short time, please call in one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become obstructed. 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 this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our professionals will be sure your system is running securely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning scent. Give us a call at 770-450-1539 to schedule an appointment with us.
