We've been dealing with a strong metallic odor coming from our a/c unit for the past 2 months.I should note that the a/c is in the attic. The technician came and found that the coil had failed so they changed with a new one it but the odor remains. Once the a/c is off the smell goes away. Luckily because of the cold weather the a/c has worked only a few times during these 2 months. We have a newborn in the house and we are very worried. What could be the source of the strong metallic smell? could it be hazardous? what are the next steps to take so as to find the source of the problem? should we leave the house? we have a 2 zone a/c house and moved to the area where the other a/c works to be on the safe side. I am very worried about the baby's health. Thank you in advance.

A couple of questions: 1. What brand is the system and is it a variable speed HVAC? I’ve had this same situation come up several times on new system installs....
