That foul smell was mold on my cooling coil

For a while I was dealing with a odory air conditioner.

  • It had a wet, musty smell every time it operated.

Since the A/C doesn’t get a lot of action in Chicago, IL, I thought it wasn’t a big deal. It ran, was giving me fine biweekly bills, and would reliably turn on. So who loves a foul smell? Well I did when I realized I was hosting family Easter this year and most people were coming to my home. The last thing I wanted was for most people to smell that funky odor. I immediately got on the PC with a Chcaigo A/C repair business. I told them my issue and paid to have them out immediately. The A/C company gave my component a wonderful scrubbing, he showed me what my odory issue was. I had mold all over my cooling coil. As the A/C fired up, the air would blow over the mold and that was the smell, and okay, that is disgusting. I was smelling and breathing in moldy air quality over and over again. I am amazed I didn’t get sick or develop some kind of odd fungus. I was really excited when the guy showed me that issue. Now I am a lot better about keeping up-to-date with A/C cleanings. Once a year I call for A/C service in the Spring to get the cooling component washed up. I make sure they detach mold, mildew, and bacteria. I don’t want that smell again or to have spores being blown over. So gross to guess about even this afternoon.
