Why Does My Air Conditioner Smell Musty?
Posted on September 18th, 2014
A musty air conditioner smell
is a red flag for mold in your HVAC system. An over sized unit cannot effectively remove the moisture from the air, leading to mold growth and a musty odor. A water leak in the AC unit
can also produce a musty smell. If the drip trays that usually collect water draining through the system are leaking or ineffective, the stagnant liquid becomes a breeding ground for mold.
