The weather is turning brisk in Des Moines 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 declaring 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 operating 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 move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually establish any sort of hazard and the smell will normally go away after a little bit. However, if the smell does not diminish after a while, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten blocked. 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 this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our professionals will make sure your system is running securely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning smell. Give us a call at 515-207-6569 to arrange an appointment with us.
