Why is There a Foul Smell Coming from My Air Conditioning Unit?

There are a number of different things that can cause an air conditioning unit to produce a foul smell, many of which can be avoided with regular servicing and proper maintenance. Having your air conditioning unit serviced regularly will stop a lot of these foul smells from occurring and will keep the entire unit working well. However, that’s not very helpful if you have already skipped a service and are now noticing an unpleasant smell whenever turn on the air conditioning. Luckily, it’s a problem that we are able to solve.

What’s Causing My Air Conditioning Unit to Smell Bad?

It’s important to remember that your air conditioning unit recirculates air from the room, which means that any bad smells from the room itself can build up over time within the unit itself. When this is combined with the fact that the air conditioning unit will also be removing moisture from the room, it’s easy to see how bacteria and damp can build up. If this isn’t removed with a regular service, a foul smell can occur. A foul smell can also occur when air becomes clogged within the unit, when fluid leaks from the engine, when fungus begins to grow and when there is some sort of short circuit problem. Though these may sound like serious problems, they are generally very easy to solve. 

You don’t need to simply deal with the smell and hope that it goes away on its own, not when we are here to help. There is very little chance of the problem solving itself and there is very little chance of the foul small going away, if anything it could continue to get worse.
