The weather is getting colder in the Rio Grande Valley and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get a great deal 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 collected inside your system. The first time you activate your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will travel through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of hazard and the smell will usually go away after a little bit. However, if the scent does not go away after a while, please call in one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be clogged. 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 annual air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our experts will make sure your system is working safely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning scent. Give us a call at 956-630-3522 to arrange an appointment with us.
