I had Central Air installed last summer.
Since I live in Michigan the unit only runs in July, August and part of September. Anyway I turned the unit on today and a very strong foral smell filled the entire house. It subsides after the unit runs for awhile but returns when the unit has been off for awhile. I have changed all the return filters including the one in the air handler.

Any help would be appreciated.

Installer did install a trap but they positioned the trap as to interfere with removing the filter in front of the coil.

The drain routes outside and there are no sources of odor available for the drain to pickup.

They have since replumbed the drain but have no idea where the smell is coming from.

It is a pungent floral smell.

Any ideas?
