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.

Thank you so much to you both! We are having the air ducts cleaned this weekend.

We will also clean the pan and the coils. Let's hope this works!
