The temperatures are falling here in Carson City and that means soon we’ll be counting on the comfort of our furnaces. This is traditionally the time we receive several furnace repair calls from our clients concerned about a weird smell evading from their furnace. If it’s been a few months since you’ve used your furnace and you smell something strange, stay calm. There’s probably nothing to worry about and there are a few reasons your furnace may smell strange.
Last winter was most likely the last time you’ve had to use your furnace. Throughout the year, dirt may have gathered inside of your furnace. Running your furnace for the first time will burn that off, producing a smell. This smell will spread through your home throughout your duct work. This usually isn’t a dangerous circumstance and the scent will not last long. But, if the smell doesn’t go away in a short while, you’ll have to call in an expert to assess the issue.
Another probable cause of interesting smells coming from your furnace is a blocked air filter. A clogged filter will cause your blower motor to run harder which could cause the motor and/or your furnace to overheat.
You’re better safe than sorry and if there are any odors coming from your furnace the team at Anderson Heating & A/C in Carson City are ready to check things out and set your mind and nose at ease.
