The weather is cooling down in Huntsville and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you start 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 hazard and the smell will usually go away after a short amount of time. However, if the smell does not diminish after a short time, please call in one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become blocked. This can cause your blower motor to get overused and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
