Have you been wondering what the cause of that awful smell coming from your aircond unit is? Well, it’s about time you found out. Here are a few reasons why your aircond smells so bad and the damages you might be facing!
1. Dust, Mildew and Mould
Do you smell a funky and stale smell coming from your aircond unit? If your air conditioner smells mouldy, the general cause is the accumulation of water in the drain pan or drip lines.
Another reason why you might be smelling that nasty smell is your clogged air filter. It is recommended to have your air filter cleaned every other month to ensure your aircond is working efficiently, so the aircond unit is not just recirculating dust around the house.
2. Overheating Parts
Does it smell like something is burning when you turn on your aircond unit? If so, we highly recommend you to turn it off and get a professional to have it checked up as soon as possible.
It is possible that some components in your aircond unit are actually burning. This can be caused by dust which has settled in the aircond unit after a long period of inactivity. However, we still strongly advise that you seek help from our aircond professionals to be extra safe.
3. Leaking Gas
Last but not least, yet another alarming scent to be smelling coming from your aircond unit is gas. Immediately turn off your aircond unit and to be sure, check your kitchen stove to make sure that it isn’t the cause of the gas leak smell.
Smelling a gas leak from your aircond unit means that gas is leaking and getting into your ductwork. After turning off your aircond and the gas supply, do call a professional to detect and determine the problem.
To prevent any further problems and detecting them earlier, schedule aircond servicing regularly. Our aircond professionals will assist you and solve the issue in no time. Book our aircond servicing and enjoy great benefits such as a reservice if unsatisfied.
