The weather is cooling down in Naples and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period 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 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 establish any sort of danger and the smell will typically be gone after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not go away after a bit, please notify one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor 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 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 pros will ensure your system is running securely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning smell.
