Changing seasons with Affordable Service HVAC - what is that burning smell?
As winter months approach, the chill in the air may require you to turn your heater on for the first time this fall season. Yet, when you switch your thermostat to heat you may notice, the faint smell similar to something burning which can alarm your family members. Affordable Service HVAC can explain a few reasons for the off-putting odor.
That smell could be due to the amount of time your furnace has been sitting unused. Oftentimes, a thin layer of dust collects inside the heating conversion system and burns off during the first use of the season. However, if it has been quite some time since the furnace has seen use, or if you are concerned about the possibility of excessive dust accumulation, contact our qualified techs at Affordable Service. Our technicians will perform a thorough inspection of your heating system. We also provide maintenance services, such as changing of air filters, to ensure dust is not a factor.
The burning smell could be related to a heating blockage in your ductwork or an electrical issue. In this case, contact Affordable Service at (505)891-8907 and we'll be happy to send a technician out for a thorough inspection.
