The weather is cooling down in West Valley City 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 collected inside your system. The first time you activate 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 concern and the smell will normally go away after a little bit. However, if the odor does not decrease after a while, please inform one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter could be blocked. This can cause your blower motor to get overused and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
