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

Repair

The weather is turning brisk in Muskogee and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This time of year we get a great deal 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 using for a little while. In that time, dust may have collected inside your system. The first time you turn on 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 danger and the smell will usually be gone after a little bit. However, if the scent does not go away after a while, please inform one of our experts.

Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be obstructed. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary 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 in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular air conditioner repair, now is the perfect time.
