The temperatures are falling here in Eastland and that means soon we’ll be depending on the comfort of our furnaces. This is typically the time we receive various furnace repair calls from our clients concerned about a strange smell coming from their furnace. If it’s been a little while since you’ve turned on your furnace and you smell something weird, stay calm. There’s probably nothing to worry about and there are several reasons your furnace might smell strange.
Last winter was maybe the last time you’ve had to operate your furnace. For most of the year, dirt may have built up inside of your furnace. Starting up your furnace for the first time will burn that off, creating a smell. This smell will move through your home throughout your duct work. This typically isn’t a harmful circumstance and the odor will not last long. Although, if the smell doesn’t go away in a short while, you’ll need to call in a professional to assess the issue.
Another realistic cause of strange 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.
