The weather is cooling down in Middletown 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 expressing 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 gathered 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 pose any sort of hazard and the smell will normally diminish after a little bit. However, if the scent does not go away after a while, please notify one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be obstructed. 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 these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our experts will be sure your system is running safely and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning odor. Give us a call at 302-231-1380 to arrange an appointment with us.
