The weather is turning brisk in Oxford and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year 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 journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of hazard and the smell will normally be gone after a little bit. However, if the scent does not decrease after a short time, please inform one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be blocked. 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 key part of your life even during these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the last chance. Our professionals will be sure your system is operating securely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning scent.
