Why Does Your Air Conditioner Smell When You Turn It On?

The weather is cooling down in Vero Beach and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get many 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated inside your system. The first time you turn on 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 concern and the smell will normally be gone after a while. However, if the odor does not decrease after a while, please call in 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 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 smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to worry about a burning odor.
