The weather is turning brisk in Tucson 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 using 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 travel through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of danger and the smell will typically be gone after a short amount of time. However, if the smell does not go away after a short time, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten blocked. This can cause your blower motor to get overused and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
