You probably are picking up an odor from way up inside somewhere.
That was my thoughts, I have an employee that was a contractor in FL and he was telling me about a hospital they built and because the heat ducts were dumped in the parking lot for a month before using they had a slight mold problem in the first floor heat ducting, they had to rip out and replace.
Or could be a simple as when the house was framed, it rained and had a small amount of mold.
