The weather is turning brisk in Fort Lauderdale and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a lot of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners expressing 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 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 present any sort of concern and the smell will usually go away after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not decrease 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 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 important part of your life even during in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our experts will make sure your system is working securely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning scent.
