Why does my air conditioner smell like dirty socks?

Dirty sock syndrome only smells when the indoor coil cools and the bacteria releases its smell into the air. There are a number of recommendations for limiting this problem. One of the most common, but short term fixes is to use a bleach and pine solution on the coils to try and kill the bacteria. A tea tree oil solution should also work.
