Our professionals at Cal Air Cooling and Heating recognize that HVAC systems should neither be heard nor smelled. Odd noises coming from your heating and cooling unit often indicate underlying problems with its mechanics; likewise, strange odors are also a sign that something has gone awry. Here are our top solutions for addressing the most common sources of bad smells in your HVAC system.
As air is circulated throughout your home, your registers, ductwork and filters gradually accumulate dust and dirt. These contaminants often get mixed in with condensation from your unit, creating an ideal environment for mold and mildew to thrive. The most recognizable sign of mold and mildew growth is the smell, a uniquely musky odor that can easily spread throughout your home.
Our NATE-certified technicians at Cal Air are trained to remove the grime and dirt that builds up within ductwork with our professional duct-cleaning services. You can also avoid future issues with mold and mildew and ensure a proper seal within your ducts and vents by taking advantage of our air duct sealing services. Sealing your ducts will greatly improve your indoor air quality, as well as help you save on your energy bills.
If you have a gas-fired furnace, you need to be extra wary if you smell rotten eggs. Natural gas has a very similar smell, which means you may have a gas leak somewhere in your home. This is extremely dangerous, so if the smell of rotten eggs ever begins to emanate from your HVAC system, it’s vital that you evacuate the building immediately. Never attempt to resolve this problem yourself. Instead, call for help from trained and licensed professionals.
