The temperatures are falling here in Northglenn and that means soon we’ll be depending on the comfort of our furnaces. This is usually the time we receive various furnace repair calls from our clients concerned about a strange smell evading from their furnace. If it’s been a little while since you’ve run your furnace and you smell something weird, stay calm. There’s probably nothing to worry about and there are a few reasons your furnace might smell strange.
Last winter was maybe the last time you’ve had to run your furnace. For most of the year, debris may have gathered 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 usually isn’t a dangerous situation and the smell will not last long. Although, if the smell doesn’t go away quickly, you’ll need to call in an expert to inspect things.
Another probable cause of weird smells coming from your furnace is a congested air filter. A clogged filter will cause your blower motor to run harder which could cause the motor and/or your furnace to overheat.
