I need help troubleshooting. There are acrid/caustic smells and fumes, which seem to come from the area near a Water Source Heat Pump vertical stack System installed in my high-rise condominium.
The smells do not seem to be correlated with the system being either on or off in any mode, i.e. cooling, heating, fan modes. The smell is there even with the system off.
There are persistent fumes and a smell that seems to irritate the eyes if exposed to the are for too long.
The system is in one of the bathrooms and hangs from the concrete ceiling overhead and is concealed above a dropped ceiling.
First I need to determine the source of the smell. There are also Gas pipes which running vertcle through the building behind the walls. I'm having the gas and electric company check to see if it is an issue with these mechanical systems in the building.
Any advice is appreciated.
