The temperatures are dropping here in Holdrege and that means soon we’ll be relying on the comfort of our furnaces. This is traditionally the time we have various furnace repair calls from our clients anxious about a strange smell coming from their furnace. If it’s been a few months since you’ve run your furnace and you smell something bizarre, stay calm. There’s probably nothing to worry about and there are a number of reasons your furnace could smell strange.
Last winter was probably the last time you’ve had to use your furnace. Throughout the year, dirt may have gathered inside of your furnace. Starting up 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 typically isn’t a harmful condition and the odor will not last long. Although, if the smell doesn’t go away in a short while, you’ll have to call in an expert to take a look at your system.
Another realistic 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 professionals at Durable Service in Holdrege are ready to check things out and set your mind and nose at ease.
