Do you have Dirty Sock Syndrome?

Do you come home only to find your house smells a little bit. . . funky?

If your HVAC system is producing an unpleasant odor, it’s probably Dirty Sock Syndrome. But don’t worry, we won’t tell your neighbours.

It’s called Dirty Sock Syndrome (DSS) because that’s what it smells like–dirty socks! This awful smell started showing up in Jacksonville about 10 years ago in both residential and commercial heating and air conditioning systems. It’s not just an odor problem, it can quickly become an expensive maintenance repair problem down the road.

DSS is likely bacteria related and is caused by dampness accumulating around the coils in your air handler and possibly throughout your heating and air system. It’s estimated that up to 50% of the homes and businesses in the greater Jacksonville area either have or will experience this most unpleasant odor problem.
