At Baylor Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. we want our clients to be comfortable in their homes. So what does it mean if your air conditioning unit is emitting a foul smell? We’ll look at a couple of those reasons in this article.

What could be causing that terrible smell?

There are a variety of reason that an air conditioner could stink. These units are largely dormant in Evansville during the winter months and many times something small can cause a big stink when it’s time to get your unit cooling off your home again. Some of the reasons for your strange smell include:

  • Mold/mildew
  • Dead animal
  • Gas leak
  • Clog in the unit
  • Problems with the motor

Pay careful attention to the smell. Some smells are a nuisance but some indicate there could be a serious problem with your unit.
