The weather is getting colder in Lodi and we must turn our furnaces on soon. This season we get a great deal 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 running your furnace since last year. In that time dust may have collected 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 present any sort of hazard and the smell will usually go away after a while. However, if the smell does not go away after a while, please call in one of our experts.
Another reason you could be smelling an unusual scent from your furnace is that your air filter might have gotten clogged. 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 crucial part of your life these coming months. If you haven’t yet scheduled your routine furnace repair, now is the last chance. Our experts will be sure your system is operating safely and clean the internal components before you have to be concerned about a burning smell.
