The weather is turning brisk in West Jefferson and we will need to turn our furnaces on soon. This season we get a lot of furnace repair calls from homeowners declaring 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 year. In that time dust may have gathered inside your system. The first time you activate your furnace, that dust will burn off. 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 be gone 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 odor 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 important part of your life this winter season. If you haven’t yet scheduled your regular furnace repair, now is the last chance. Our professionals will ensure your system is running smoothly and clean the internal components before you have to fret about a burning scent. Give us a call at 614-450-1575 to arrange an appointment with us.
