Signs Your Car’s Ac Or Heater Vents May Need Cleaned
  • You notice a musty or odd odor coming from your car’s air vents.
  • Your air system causes sneezing or watery eyes; or
  • You drive in places with higher-than-average levels of dust, pollution, or pollen.

Ventilation systems direct the flow of air conditioned or heated air into your car. Although many ventilation systems have a cabin filter, the dirt, pollen, pollutants, and contaminants that come with day-to-day driving, may be captured within the ventilation system. Poor airflow, unpleasant odors, and even no airflow can all be caused by issues within a vehicle’s heating and air conditioning and ventilation systems.

A clean ventilation system helps keep smog, allergens, and other pollutants from entering your car’s cabin.

Regular cleaning of the evaporator core, which is a type of heat exchange device, can help to facilitate proper heating and cooling of a vehicle’s interior. A clean core can help to facilitate the refrigerant to properly absorb heat and then convert it to a low-temperature vapor within the evaporator coils. Colder air in a vehicle's cabin is regulated by its driver and passengers, which is blasted into the vehicle through the vents.

When the air conditioning is on, the rapid cooling of air can cause condensation allowing fungus, mold, and mildew to form on the plastic and foam inside the ventilation system. The fungus is then blown into the car with the air conditioned or heated air.

The most common signs that a vehicle's heating or air conditioning system is malfunctioning are musty scents, which may lead to sneezing, itching, and watery eyes. These issues could most likely be caused by microorganisms in the vehicle's heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems.

A musty odor from the heating/air conditioning ventilation system could be an indication of a buildup of fungi/mildew. If you drive in places with higher-than-average levels of dust, pollution, or pollen, you may need the service more frequently.
