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

November 01, 2016

The weather is turning brisk in Muldrow and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of hazard and the smell will usually go away after a while. However, if the smell does not go away 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 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 in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our professionals will make sure your system is operating safely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning scent.
