Common Causes Of A Smelly Air Conditioner

Common Causes Of A Smelly Air Conditioner

Regular air conditioning service and maintenance are crucial if you want to maintain good indoor air quality in your home and eliminate bad odours coming from your cooling unit. Mould and mildew can grow inside your air conditioning system due to cool and damp conditions which then releases airborne contaminants into your home. This can have a detrimental effect on your family’s health.

Air Conditioning Odour Causes

1. Mould and mildew is one of the major causes of bad odour
2. Unpleasant smells can also be caused by a dirty filter
3. Sometimes your aircon can circulate smells from outside throughout your home

These unpleasant smells can be caused by various components of your air conditioning system. Dirt and dust can collect on evaporator coils or inside your aircon’s ductwork and lead to mould and mildew growth. Contaminants can also accumulate on a dirty air filter.

How to eliminate air conditioner odours

There are many ways to eliminate air conditioner smells. One is to change your air filter regularly. By doing frequent maintenance on your air conditioner, you will ensure better indoor air quality, eliminate foul smells and also improve your aircon’s efficiency. Another way to get rid of mould spores and other contaminants is to install UV lights in your duct system. A purifier can also be useful. If you’ve tried everything and the odour is still present, it might be time to replace your aircon unit. Read 4 Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Air Conditioner
