      How to Get Rid of Strange Odors Coming From Your Vents

      If you find yourself wrinkling your nose every time you pass by your HVAC vents, then you should definitely do something about it. There are actually a lot of unpleasant smells that can come out of your vents, and each one indicates a specific problem. We discuss three of the more common ones in today’s blog.  

      How to Get Rid of Strange Odors Coming From Your Vents

      Stinky feet. No, you probably don’t have a pair of dirty socks stuck in your ductwork. Rather, this smell coming from your vents is commonly associated with mold and mildew, which typically grows inside your heater and ductwork. If you notice any areas in your home where the smell is more pronounced, then you may have located the source. Cleaning the area with disinfectant can solve the problem. If the issue persists, you should call in an HVAC professional to address it.

      Rotting garbage. When the temperature begins to drop, it’s not uncommon for wild animals outside to seek warmth inside your house. Unfortunately, ductwork is one of their favorite spots. If you notice a rotting garbage smell coming from your vents, it’s highly likely that an unwelcome guest has died. If this indeed ends up being the case, you should have the remains removed as soon as possible.

      A burning smell. If you notice a burning smell, the first thing you should do is make sure that nothing is actually on fire. Once that possibility is eliminated, be sure to have your heater checked out immediately. There are various mechanical issues that can cause your heater to produce a burning smell.
