Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system.  Our technicians tell us a cleaner is available for the heater case. Also, the drain system should be checked for debris.

    Horribly musty, "bad rag" odor coming from vents when turning on AC. It doesn't seem to stink when I use the heater, just the AC. It's awful.
