The weather is getting colder in Chelan and Wenatchee and we’ll likely be reducing the use of our air conditioners. This fall period we get a lot 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 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 move through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of concern and the smell will normally go away after a while. However, if the smell does not diminish after a bit, please inform one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an odor from your air conditioner is that your air filter might have gotten obstructed. This can cause your blower motor to run harder than necessary and could cause the motor, and/or the air conditioner to overheat.
