The weather is getting colder in Wausau and we’ll more than likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period 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 operating for a little while. In that time, dust may have accumulated inside your system. The first time you activate 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 establish any sort of hazard and the smell will normally go away after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not decrease after a while, please notify one of our professionals.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten clogged. This can cause your blower motor to get overused and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
