The HVAC professional told us that we had moisture forming in our ductwork and the smell was carrying throughout the house
My husband was in denial that anything was wrong with our air conditioner. I knew something was wrong several weeks before because I was picking up on weird air patterns. Some of the rooms in our house were cooler than others and the air conditioner sounded as if it was struggling to keep up. My husband thought I was overthinking things and creating issues in my head, but I knew better. Instead of creating an argument, I let the situation play out. I knew something was wrong and I’d tried to warn him, but he was going to have to find out the hard way. I sat back and waited a few days until finally, the time came where my husband realized that something was wrong. There was an odd smell coming through the air vents. The smell was hard to pinpoint, but it was the most comparable to dirty laundry. The smell started out faint, but gradually got worse as the hours passed. Finally, my husband admitted that he was wrong and that we needed to contact an HVAC professional. While I was disappointed that something was wrong, I was happy about being right. The HVAC professional told us that we had moisture forming in our ductwork and the smell was carrying throughout the house. If left untreated, mold would begin to form. The HVAC professional checked for leaks and fixed everything he could, but he also advised that we have our ductwork professionally cleared to eliminate the smell.
