The weather is getting colder in Omaha and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period 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 running 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 establish any sort of danger and the smell will normally diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not go away after a while, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor 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 crucial part of your life even during these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time.
