Smelly feet smell too NEW
by: Anonymous

Our unit was installed last Dec. No problem until I shut the heat pump if September since temperature didn't require air or heat. Oct 15I turned the air on as it was hot and humid in the house. Instant smell of sweating dirty sneakers.

THIS IS WHAT IS CALL "DIRTY SOCK SYNDROME" WHICH IS CAUSED BY A FUNGUS ON THE EVAP COIL. COILS NEED TO BE CLEANED AND FOGGED OR AT THE VERY LEAST, IF EVAP COIL IS ACCESSABLE, SPRAY IT WITH LYSOL, BLEACH OR ANYTHING THAT WILL KILL FUNGUS AND MICRO ORGANISMS. ID RECOMMEND REPEATING THIS WITH EVERY FILTER CHANGED TO KEEP THIS FUNGI AT BAY.

It's actually called dirty sock syndrome. Fungus growing on the coil
