Strong Noxious Odor
by Kathy C
(Traverse City, MI)
A strong noxious odor slowly fills our walkout level room AFTER the central air conditioner is turned off. It is a new Carrier furnace and air conditioner, about 2 1/2 months old. It gets so bad that we cannot go in the room.
Our First Alert went off a couple of times. It is making us feel tired. We have had headaches and feel generally tired - bad taste in the mouth. When it is really bad my lungs feel pressure when I enter the room.
It takes almost two days to air the room out with doors and windows open and 2 ceiling fans running. The technician came out and thought it was our carpet.
We removed the carpet and still have the problem. The bad air seems to come from one supply vent in the room. Any ideas?
