My AC Smells Bad – What Do I Do?

It is not uncommon for smells to accompany the air that your AC pumps through your vents. In fact, it is quite logical. Your AC system pumps air throughout your house. This circulated air comes from wherever the intake of the system is. So, if there is a smell anywhere, the system will carry the odor all the way through the air flow.

Exactly what smell you experience will tell you a lot about what the problem is. Two of the most common AC smells are musty, dirty smells and rotten egg smells. If you experience a musty smell, similar to dirty laundry, the culprit is usually mold or bacteria buildup. A rotten egg smell, however, usually means that pests or dead animals are somewhere in your system. In either case, the smell can be harmful. Deadly bacteria or mold can result from these issues. It’s important that you call an expert immediately if you notice your AC smells bad now or in the future.
