The temperatures are dropping here in Pacheco and that means soon we’ll be depending on the comfort of our furnaces. This is typically the time we have various furnace repair calls from our patrons worried about a weird smell coming from their furnace. If it’s been a few months since you’ve turned on your furnace and you smell something bizarre, stay calm. There’s most likely nothing to worry about and there are a few reasons your furnace may smell strange.
Last winter was probably the last time you’ve had to use your furnace. During the year, dirt may have built up inside of your furnace. Running 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 serious condition and the odor will not last long. However, if the smell doesn’t go away quickly, you’ll want to call in an expert to inspect things.
Another realistic 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.
