The temperatures are dropping here in Central Point and that means soon we’ll be counting on the comfort of our furnaces. This is traditionally the time we get various furnace repair calls from our customers concerned about a strange smell coming from their furnace. If it’s been awhile 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 maybe the last time you’ve had to operate your furnace. For most of the year, dirt may have gathered inside of your furnace. Turning on your furnace for the first time will burn that off, creating a smell. This smell will travel through your home throughout your duct work. This usually isn’t a serious circumstance and the odor will not last long. But, if the smell doesn’t go away after a brief time, you’ll have to call in a professional to take a look at your system.
Another probable cause of strange smells coming from your furnace is a clogged 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 professionals at Titan Heating & Air Conditioning in Central Point are ready to check things out and set your mind and nose at ease.
