I moved into a 425 sq ft apartment about a month ago. The AC had a leak for awhile. When I found it, they replaced the AC. I have had the new AC for about 2 weeks.
I have a musky old wood odor in my apartment that is real strong. I bought a air cleaner and all it does it suck the odor in more and spread it around.
I believe the odor is coming from the air intake compartment. When I put my nose to the air intake compartment, I can not smell the odor. But when I run my AC fan it fills my apartment with the odor.
I took a picture of one of the pieces of wood that would get wet when the old AC leaked. Would this piece of wood be the culprit of the smell? Even if I can't smell the odor when I place my nose near it the intake compartment?
