It smells like something died in my house, but I am suspicious that it may be problems with my heat/AC system.
I have a hydronic heat boiler running into an air handler the does both heat & A/C into what used to be a conventional scorched hot air system. I replaced the old furnace with the boiler with hopes of doing in floor radiant heat at some point in the future. I have had problems with the A/C condensate overflowing the pan in the air handler and ending up on the floor, soaking the rug on the lower (partly finished) level of the condo. I had my contractor replumb the 1" condensate line that empties into an ejector pump to create a steeper incline to insure better drainage. In doing so they bypassed the existing P trap, capped it, and tied the condensate line into the ejector tank inlet at a lower level. The condensate line is now a straight shot with no trap. It would look to me like the negative air pressure in the air handler is drawing sewer gas up the condensate line and into the duct work where it is distributing it about the house. Some areas smell more, where I assume the gas settles when not being blown about by the fan. Will a simple P trap solve this issue? Do I need a new heating contractor?
