Blog-Why Does My AC Smell?

Are you asking “Why Does My AC Smell?” – It’s Time for an HVAC Inspection!

 

There’s nothing like the feel of cool air from your air conditioner on a hot summer day. The only thing that could ruin it would be an odor like dirty socks drifting in from the AC vents. If your air conditioning starts to smell, it’s best to call us for a system inspection. These are several possible causes of foul odors from your AC; none of them should be neglected!

  • A clogged condensate drain may be creating a haven for mold and mildew
     
  • An oversized AC unit may not remove enough moisture, allowing mold and mildew to grow within the system
     
  • Dirty cooling coils can cause strange odors
     
  • Air filtration problems may leave odor causing contaminants in the AC system

While some of these are unpleasant inconveniences, mold in your home can be a serious health hazard. With any kind of odor coming from your AC, the safest thing to do is call Dunn Heating Climatecare and have a certified technician investigate the problem.
