The temperatures are dropping here in Hasbrouck Heights and that means soon we’ll be depending on the comfort of our furnaces. This is traditionally the time we receive several furnace repair calls from our clients anxious about a weird smell evading from their furnace. If it’s been a little while since you’ve used your furnace and you smell something strange, stay calm. There’s most likely nothing to worry about and there are a few reasons your furnace might smell strange.
Last winter was maybe the last time you’ve had to run 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 situation and the smell will not last long. Although, if the smell doesn’t go away quickly, you’ll want to call in a technician to assess the issue.
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.
