This supplies a platform for companies to publish their own reviews and individuals to hastily publish evaluations without the business in question's capability to professionally fix the problem.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Car'S Air Conditioning Vents Smell Like Mold?
I Have A 2007 Scion Tc And I Bought It With That Smell. It Only Smells Like It For The First 2 Seconds When I Turn On The A/C After My Car Has Been Sitting. I Bought The Car Just Last Week And They Didn'T Have Time To Clean It As Well As They Wanted To. Anyways, I Checked The Cabin Air Filter And It Didn'T Smell. I Heard You Can Spray The Vents With Some Type Of Cleaner That Kills Mildew. Can Someone Tell Me The Brand, What It'S Called, And Where I Could Possibly Buy It? There Is An Autozone 15 Minutes Away But I Want To Know What The Stuff Is Called. I Also Want To Know, How Can I Clean The Engine Covers? They'Re Just Plastic But Theres A Lot Of Dust. I Don'T Want To Clean By Just Hosing Under The Hood With Water.

Check the cabin air filter for the AC and the Fran for the evaporator housing.

Trane Central Heating And Air Conditioning Question?
I Have A Large Trane Heat Pump In My Home. My Question Is This, The Thermostat Is Placed On The Wall In The Hallway Directly Under The Air Intake And The Filter Is Located Above In The Ceiling. It Seems Like This Is The Coldest And Draftiest Place In The Home Because It Is Where The Intake Is Drawing In The Air. Wouldn'T The System Do A Better Job If I Relocated The Thermostat To A Place Where The Air Temperature Is More Constant? Thanks!

This is from a Honeywell Installation manual....
Do not install the thermostat where it can be affected by:
-Drafts or dead spots behind doors and in corners.
-Hot or Cold air from ducts.
-Near a cold air return.
-Radiant heat from sun or appliances.
-Concealed pipes and chimneys.
-Unheated (uncooled) areas such as an outside wall behind the thermostat.

So I would move it away from the path of returning air, you are right.

What Does A Dead Person Smell Like?
This Is No Joke, But Whenever I Turn On My Air Conditioning, It Smells Like A Nasty Dead Fish Smell. There'S A Couple Old People That Live On The Floor Above Me...If You Know What I Mean. But Could It Be Like A Dead Rat In The System, Or Maybe Someone Cooking Something Nasty? I Called The Maintenance And They Said They'Ll Come Out Tomorrow...

must be a dead rat.. its hard to explain how it smells.. but its pretty nasty..and rats do climb through into pipes and air conditioners.. they are nosy little creatures... once a rat got stuck in my kitchen chimney ( the pipes) and it chewed up all the plastic piping and died inside..it was gross.. i cant say say for sure but its most probably a dead rat.. cant possibly be a dead person!? well.. all you can do now is just wait for your maintainance guys to come in tomorrow..!

Party Ideas For A Ski Lodge Theme?
I Am Hosting A Party For 50 People And We Are All Skiers And Snowboarders. I Wanted To Create A Ski Lodge Theme And Was Wondering If Anyone Has Any Ideas For Decorations And Also Buffet Ideas. Would Love To Hear Your Ideas.

well, turn the air conditioning down to 65 and turn the fireplace on low.
lean snow boards, ski's, and sleds against the walls, bring out your winter throws, put some coffee on, make hot cocoa (stand by with Kahlua) put some apple cider on the back burner on low, add a few cinnamon sticks and a hand full of red-hots, this makes the whole house smell like winter...
wind a garland of pine cones and or cranberries around your buffet table, i usually have macaroni & cheese with ham pieces, BBQ meatballs and warm salmon dip in the 3-slot roaster, then have the little smokies in crescent rolls, sliced ham or beef, rolls, maybe throw in a veggie platter, and have a platter of crackers for your dip. a few bowls of chips, and maybe a platter of cookies.

Recently When I Start My Car, The Air Conditioning Smells Like Vinegar At First - What Could Cause This?
My Car Is Somewhat New (2005 Mazda3), And It Has Never Had Any Mechanical Problems At All. It'S Been Brought In For All Of Its Routine Maintenance For The Past Few Years, Fluid Levels Look Good. It Just Smells Like Potent Vinegar When I First Turn The A/C On, It Lasts For About 5 Seconds And Then It Goes Away. It Happens Every Time I Start The Car And Turn On The A/C. Any Thoughts? Appreciate It! -Ross

Its usually Caused by Mold forming in the Radiator
