Why Does Your Air Conditioner Smell When You Turn It On?

The weather is turning brisk in Boynton Beach and we’ll probably 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 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 journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of concern and the smell will typically go away after a little bit. However, if the odor does not diminish after a bit, please call in one of our experts.

Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be obstructed. 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 crucial part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our professionals will make sure your system is working securely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning odor.
