Have you noticed that your air conditioning unit has been working less efficiently? Are you noticing a strange, odd smell whenever you turn it on? This is a common problem with AC’s, but fortunately, it is a problem that can be fixed. With the help of our Palm Springs air conditioner repair technicians, we can help you identify the sources of odor coming from your AC, and work to fix it right away.
The two most prevalent smells that come from air conditioning units are the “dirty sock” smell, which is bacteria and is often caused by mildew or mold. The cool, moist environment in combination with dust or dirt in the system is what promotes mold growth. It is best to have these cleaned out on a regular basis. Our Palm Springs air conditioner service technicians can assist you with this.
Your air conditioner can develop a musty, "gym-sock" smell due to any of the following:
The other most common odor is the smell of “rotten eggs,” which happens if there is vermin, a rodent, or another pest that has died in your air conditioning system.
Some of the surefire signs an animal has died in your AC system include:
Pest problems can get out of control very quickly. First, we urge you to contact a professional pest control company to have the animal removed as well as locate any major pest issues before they worsen. Secondly, our Palm Springs air conditioning technicians can help you make sure that the unit is working properly and efficiently once the animal is removed and pest problem is under control.
