Could be coolant leaking from the heater core connections.

Keep an eye on the coolant levels, could explain something.

If the heater core is cracked, you would be smelling coolant (anti-freeze). If you think you're smelling Freon, it would be from the evaporator. As insider suggests, keep an eye on your coolant level. If your AC starts to not cool very well, then have that system checked for leaks.
