Why Does Your Furnace Smell When You Turn It On? 11/01/2016 The temperatures are dropping here in San Angelo and that means soon we’ll be depending on the comfort of our furnaces. This is usually the time we have various furnace repair calls from our customers anxious about a strange smell coming from their furnace. If it’s been a little while since you’ve turned on your furnace and you smell something bizarre, stay calm. There’s probably nothing to worry about and there are a number of reasons your furnace may smell strange. Last winter was maybe the last time you’ve had to operate your furnace. During the year, dirt 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 usually isn’t a serious circumstance and the odor will not last long. Although, if the smell doesn’t go away after a brief time, you’ll need to call in a professional to inspect your system. 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 team at Air-Dynamics Inc in San Angelo are ready to check things out and set your mind and nose at ease.
