The weather is getting colder in Justin and we will need to turn our furnaces on soon. This fall period we get many of furnace repair calls from homeowners declaring that they smell something when they turn their furnace on for the first time. Most likely you haven’t been using your furnace since it was last cold. In that time dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you start your furnace, that dust will incinerate. The smell from this will journey through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually establish any sort of danger and the smell will usually diminish after a short amount of time. However, if the odor does not go away after a while, please call in one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your furnace is that your air filter might have gotten blocked. This can cause your blower motor to get overused and could cause the motor, and/or the furnace to overheat.
Your furnace is going to be an key part of your life this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your annual furnace repair, now is the perfect time. Our experts will be sure your system is operating smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning scent.
