of vents heavy metallic smell and burning
hair, has no trash or leaves or plastic bags
and does it all operations recirc, fresh air.
A/c works fine otherwise but I feel like I'm
getting sick from the fumes like copper

Toxic fumes from evaporator boiling?

Sounds like someone needs to start "ripen and tearing" the HVAC box and examine the Heater/Evap assembly. My guess is the Evap is beginning to leak.
