The temperatures are decreasing here in Georgetown and that means soon we’ll be relying on the comfort of our furnaces. This is typically the time we receive several furnace repair calls from our clients concerned about a weird smell escaping from their furnace. If it’s been a few months since you’ve turned on your furnace and you smell something strange, stay calm. There’s typically nothing to worry about and there are a number of reasons your furnace might smell strange.
Last winter was probably the last time you’ve had to use your furnace. For most of the year, dust may have built up inside of your furnace. Running your furnace for the first time will burn that off, leaving a smell. This smell will move through your home throughout your duct work. This usually isn’t a harmful condition and the scent will not last long. Although, if the smell doesn’t go away quickly, you’ll need to call in a technician to assess things.
Another realistic cause of weird smells coming from your furnace is a congested air filter. A clogged filter will cause your blower motor to run harder which could cause the motor and/or your furnace to overheat.
