Did it just start doing that suddenly? If so, something might have gotten in the system. If it smells like dirty socks, there's some type of mildew in the ducts.

I had to remove the heater box and plenum to clean one out. I used a chlorinated cleaner internally. There are products that can be sprayed inside and sort of work. I tried but it didn't last. Yours might be different. Here's just one. 1Z Einszett Klima-Cleaner Air Conditioner Treatment
