    That would be a good test to help eliminate possibilities. Another check we haven't done is to see if perhaps the wax seal in the master toilet has failed. That would also allow sewer gas to...

    Last time we reproduced the smell, i went to the basement to see if I could smell it there. The smell was present in the mech space, but not nearly as strong as it was coming from the vents. Seemed...

    Yes, I think this is about the only thing left. There is a sewage smell that is getting sucked into the air handlers. Both AC units share the same return duct work so the smell is distributed...

    Had the venting scoped. Flue vents, ac vent, wall cavity all look clear. Also smell clean. The smelly air must be getting drawn into the air handlers and not from the ducts themselves.

    Flue gas at startup sounds like a plausible cause - especially with two water heaters firing at the same time. Do you think the venting relationship to temperature would explain why this happens in...

    A question relating to this problem is that while this may be a difficult thing to determine should I buy this house without knowing the source of the problem? How expensive could the fix be? How...

    They are together in an unfinished space that represents about 1/4 of the basement space. There is plenty of room for storage so I expect enough air is present for combustion.

    Match method.

    I don't believe the problem is the water. The water smells fine. The smell comes from the AC duct. Only in the summer, no problem with any smell in the winter.

    I thought it was natural gas, but...
  12. Intermittent gas smell in AC vents tied to hot water usage

    Seeking advice on a dangerous problem with an elusive cause.

    After running hot water in the master shower for a few minutes, a strong rotten egg odor is emitted from the AC vent. The smell is...
