The weather is getting colder in Grand Prairie and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get many 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 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 move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually pose any sort of concern and the smell will typically be gone after a while. However, if the scent does not diminish after a bit, please notify one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your air conditioner is that your air filter may have become clogged. 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 this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time.
