The weather is getting colder in Hodgenville and we must turn our furnaces on soon. This season we get a lot of furnace repair calls from homeowners expressing that they smell something when they turn their furnace on for the first time. Most likely you haven’t been using your furnace since last winter. In that time dust may have collected inside your system. The first time you turn on your furnace, that dust will incinerate. The smell from this will travel through your ducts throughout your house. This doesn’t usually present any sort of hazard and the smell will usually go away after a short amount of time. However, if the scent does not go away after a bit, please notify one of our pros.
Another reason you could be smelling an stench from your furnace is that your air filter may have become clogged. This can cause your blower motor to become overworked and could cause the motor, and/or the furnace to overheat.
Your furnace is going to be an key part of your life in the near future. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular furnace repair, now is the perfect time. Our experts will ensure your system is working smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning odor.
