The weather is cooling down in Hamilton and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a lot 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected 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 establish any sort of concern and the smell will normally go away after a short amount of time. However, if the scent 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 may have become 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 occasion. Our experts will make sure your system is running safely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning smell.
