Hi there,

This is mold and mildew growing inn the vents, firstly you need to ensure that the A/C drains are clear and running free, then there is a commercial disinfectant that you can used designed for the A/C system to combat this problem, check your local parts store, they should carry it.

Or get some Listerine and spray a generous amount in each intake. It kills the mildew and the funky smell. Use the old school yellow stuff, the kind without any sugar in it.
