Each and every time my central air conditioner unit kicks on lately, I have been noticing a strange and musty odor that starts emanating out of the air vents! It’s not exactly a disgusting sewage smell nor a rotting pet or anything enjoy that, so I’m not afraid of a leak or something died up in my ventilation ducts, but still, you don’t want to dread having your air conditioner unit turn on because you just know that the whole loft is going to odor strange in a matter of seconds, either.
I did a little test run just to see if maybe there was something wrong with my air filters.
I wondered if I had perhaps waited too long to change them as well as they were starting to odor funny or something similar. So I purchased some up-to-date HEPA filters as well as replaced my seasoned air filters with the new ones, however at first, the odor seemed to be a little better. But then I realized that it was because of the high quality of the HEPA filter itself, not because the source of the odor was gone. I finally quit as well as called my local Heating as well as Air Conditioning company to have them come over as well as do an HVAC duct cleaning for me, and they showed up for the appointment with their unique HVAC duct cleaning equipment as well as got to work. They found a couple of breaks as well as leaks as they were removing the debris as well as thick dust. The Heating as well as Air Conditioning specialist informed myself and others that if you have any cracks as well as leaks, occasionally mold or mildew may build up inside the HVAC ducts as well as cause strange odors. They finished the HVAC duct cleaning as well as since then, I have noticed no more strange odors at all. As a matter of fact, I think that my air quality is far better now.
