I just had a new ac coil, line set and compressor (127)

Customer Question

I just had a new ac coil, line set and compressor (127) installed in my home during the winter . It is on top of a 9 year old Bryant evolution furnace. Will the new coil give off a smell for a period of time as there is a distinct odor coming from it.

You might want to get a can of evaporator coil cleaner and clean the indoor coil. Since the coil is in a cool damp location and stays wet when in use, a fungus can develop that almost smells like dirty laundry.What does the odor you have resemnble?
