One of the most obvious signs someone needs Richardson air conditioning repair is when they notice a strange smell coming from their system. If this happens to you, get in touch with Efficient Home Solutions as soon as you can. There are actually several different kinds of odors that can come from an AC system – and just about all of them will require air conditioning repair in Richardson TX. The following are just a few examples.

 

Burning Smells

You probably don’t need us to tell you that any sort of burning odor will usually require an immediate call to Efficient Home Solutions for Richardson air conditioning repair. More than likely, this smell means that there’s some sort of mechanical issue.

However, there is a chance that there’s nothing wrong at all. It’s actually common for some older systems to produce a burning odor if they’ve been turned on for the first time in a long time, especially during the heating season. But if that odor doesn’t dissipate, that means you need air conditioning repair in Richardson TX. It could be a sign there’s a problem with the motor or the compressor.

 

Car Exhaust Odors

You know the smell when you’re behind someone whose car is belching smoke. If you get the same smell from your AC system, that’s obviously a sign of trouble. You’ll probably need air conditioning repair in Richardson TX because your system more than likely has a refrigerant leak.

 

Musty Odor

When this happens, that usually means the system is leaking water. Unlike some types of repair, however, a leaking water line is typically relatively easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. Another possibility is that you simply need to change the air filter. Try doing that and then run the system for a little while. If you still notice a musty odor, then get in touch with Efficient Home Solutions.
