The weather is getting colder in Rapid City and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a lot of air conditioner repair calls from homeowners declaring 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 collected inside your system. The first time you activate your air conditioner, that dust will get cleaned out. The smell from this will move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of hazard and the smell will typically diminish after a little bit. However, if the scent does not diminish after a short time, please inform one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be clogged. 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 important part of your life even during in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time. Our experts will ensure your system is working securely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning odor.
