The weather is turning brisk in Payson and we’ll probably be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This season 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected inside your system. The first time you start 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 danger and the smell will typically diminish after a little bit. However, if the odor does not diminish after a while, please call in one of our professionals.
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.
