The weather is turning brisk in Brookfield and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get a great deal 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 running for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered 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 danger and the smell will normally diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not go away after a bit, please call in one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be blocked. This can cause your blower motor to get overused 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 regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our professionals will be sure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning scent. Give us a call at 203-357-5913 to arrange an appointment with us.
