The temperatures are dropping here in Winnipeg and that means soon we’ll be counting on the comfort of our furnaces. This is typically the time we receive a number of furnace repair calls from our customers concerned about a unusual smell evading from their furnace. If it’s been awhile since you’ve run your furnace and you smell something weird, stay calm. There’s typically nothing to worry about and there are a few reasons your furnace could smell strange.
Last winter was probably the last time you’ve had to run your furnace. Throughout the year, dirt may have gathered inside of your furnace. Turning on your furnace for the first time will burn that off, producing a smell. This smell will move through your home throughout your duct work. This usually isn’t a serious circumstance and the scent will not last long. However, if the smell doesn’t go away quickly, you’ll have to call in a technician to inspect things.
Another realistic cause of interesting 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.
You’re better safe than sorry and if there are any odors coming from your furnace the experts at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning in Winnipeg are ready to check things out and set your mind and nose at ease.
