The weather is turning brisk in Mankato area and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season we get many 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have gathered 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 pose any sort of danger and the smell will usually diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not diminish 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 obstructed. This can cause your blower motor to become overworked and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
