My husband and I recently bought a condo and have noticed an odor in the air. I wouldn't describe it as being musty, but more of a sour/citrus scent but not in a good way. I don't remember this smell when we were looking at the condo. The air was off for a week but has been back on for a week and has not gotten any better. I put my nose close to one of the air vents and it seemed to me that is where the odor is coming from. Before shelling out $300 to get the air ducts and handler cleaned, could there be any other reason or solution for that matter? Please help!! I hate this smell!
I am having the same problem. It started at the end of last year. I had the heating/air conditioner guy out and he could not find a problem. He suggested I have my air ducts cleaned. I can't believe it would be something in the air ducts but decided I would do it this spring. Over the winter, however, I had no smell when my furnace was running. I can't understand why I would not have the same smell in the winter. I thought that it was gone but just put my air conditioner on last week and the smell is back again. Does anyone know what this could be? I don't know what I should do.
