The rotten egg odor from the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C installation made us almost transfer out and start a life elsewhere

Do you know how people joke that if they found a snake in their home, they’d transfer out and let the snake own the house? I do not have a complication with reptiles, I can lead them out, however my experience with our home’s cooling technology almost made me make a similar decision.

  • It started mildly, a odor of sewage that would come and go.

I washed everything, including the sinks and drains, however the odor grew stronger daily. I called the plumber to come to check if I had an issue in the system that I was missing because nothing I did would help with indoor comfort. The plumber decided he wouldn’t undo anything in my sewer system or those close by because I needed a cooling professional. The odor was coming from the cooling equipment. He knew this because he had tried laboring in the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier as a cooling specialist back in university however decided it was not something he wanted to do every afternoon. I had not yet worked on the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C installation, and on checking my calendar, I had missed my appointment with the cooling company expert by three months. That would explain why the component meant to help with temperature control and air quality was doing the opposite. I called the local service provider because they offer quality AC service, and I was sure the issue would be sorted out within the afternoon. Turns out there was too much dirt accumulated within the cooling component that needed to be cleaned out. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor also told me that had the odor not tipped me off about my long overdue repair, the component would still have had another issue. I wonder whether those with an electric heat pump have the same concerns.
