The weather is cooling down in Albuquerque and we’ll likely 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 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 concern and the smell will normally go away after a little bit. However, if the smell does not go away after a bit, please notify one of our professionals.
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 become overworked and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
