Odors can we really difficult to find,what does your AC Contractor say?

At this time of the year,"dirty socks"odors are more common.They tend to occur we the system is switched fromheat to cool,or vice versa, also when a heat pump is in the defrost cycle ,which is usually in the wee hours of the morning.

Dirty socks is usually on newer systems, 3 years or less.
