Does Your AC Smell Funky?

Monday, May 18th, 2020

Air conditioning systems, especially the well-built ones, shouldn’t smell. That’s because they deal with the air in your home and the air outside, so unless the air all around us smells bad, your nose shouldn’t notice anything. Air conditioners, just like cars, don’t smell bad when they work perfectly well, and if they do start to smell—then it’s high time you had the problem checked out by a professional.

Bad smells can be anywhere from an electrical problem to a mold problem that could be impacting your health. In fact, using your nose to detect a problem could be a surefire way to avoid more expensive repairs in the future when you contact our team ahead of schedule!

So, if you think one of the following smells or problems is happening to you, call our team for AC repair in Durham, NC.
