The weather is cooling down in Moline and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year 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 running 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 journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of hazard and the smell will typically diminish after a little bit. However, if the odor does not decrease after a while, please call in one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten obstructed. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
