Help Richard T Bad Air coming into my AC System !!!!!!!

Richard T what does it mean when you smell the hint of exhaust in your air conditioning that is flowing through your house? Could it be coming from a back drafting water heater? Or your fresh air tubes that gather air from outside may be bringing in un-desired air from outside? Greg P Denver, CO. Please help !!

If your air conditioner is beginning to smell, then it's time to find and clear the source of the bad odor. Air conditioning odors usually come from mold and mildew that accumulate from condensation on the refrigerator coils, in a clogged drain pan, or leak in the system. 

 

Or may be the Indoor Filters. The filters catch dirt, dust and anything else in the air before it’s blown back out into your room.
