It sounds like there is a leak inthe evaporator section of your air conditioner. If this continues, the air conditioner will no longer cool and you may have to replace several components of the system. The smell is that of atomized esther oil.

You can smell the ammonia because ammonia molecules are moving from where they are high in concentration to where they are low in concentration in the process of diffusion.


You can't. Urine exists to remove ammonia and ammonia compounds from the body. Urine is essentially made of ammonia and water. If you drink more water your urine will be more dilute and the smell wont be as strong. Hope that helps. :)
