The weather is turning brisk in Safford 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 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 collected inside your system. The first time you turn on 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 establish any sort of hazard and the smell will usually go away after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not go away after a bit, please call in one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten blocked. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
Your air conditioner is going to be an crucial part of your life even during this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine air conditioner repair, now is the occasion. Our pros will be sure your system is working safely and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning odor. Give us a call at 928-432-6018 to set up an appointment with us.
