Musty odor

In reply to wet basements and dirty ducts by Greg on August 22nd, 1998 04:57 PM [Go to top of thread]

Greg, cleaning the duct is probably not the answer.
Most likely, there is duct leakage that is drawing
air from the basement into the air handler and distributing
it through the house. Drying up the basement is a
good idea, but having your ducts properly sealed is
really the answer. Since this can affect pressures
throughout the house, a combustion appliance safety
test should accompany the fix.
