The temperatures are falling here in Tomball and that means soon we’ll be relying on the comfort of our furnaces. This is usually the time we get a number of furnace repair calls from our clients concerned about a unusual smell evading from their furnace. If it’s been a few months since you’ve used your furnace and you smell something strange, stay calm. There’s probably nothing to worry about and there are a few reasons your furnace may smell strange.
Last winter was maybe the last time you’ve had to operate your furnace. During the year, debris 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 typically isn’t a dangerous condition and the scent will not last long. But, if the smell doesn’t go away quickly, you’ll have to call in a technician to inspect the issue.
Another realistic cause of weird 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.
