HVAC People.

Or someone who knows stuff.

When my house AC comes on, I get a distinct smell like the heater has come on. Or like the smell it gets when the heater is first turned on in the fall.

Is this an indication that the refrigerant is low? Or...?

It's a Trane gas pack, about 5 or 6 years old.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Just a guess... is the blower motor failing? Do you have the same air flow as previous to the smell? Or could the thermostat be turning on the heat strip?

the refigerant level has nothing to do with the odor.


the problem is the interior of the duct work is damp and moldy.
leaks from loose vent work, or insulation falling out of place.


I have called a Duct Cleaning service twice, once in Mesa AZ, and once here in Oklahoma.... you can't begin to imagine how much crap is stuck to the duct work.
