Most residents in your city know
to call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning when their heating
equipment starts making funny noises or leaking
water, but did you know that funny smells are another basis
to call a service technician? Read
about these heating equipment odors
you should never neglect.
The stench of rotten eggs is very distinct,
which is why many gas companies add this distinct
odor to their gas to notify homeowners and technicians that there is an issue. If
you smell this stench coming from your heating
system, shut off your gas appliances straightaway as you might have a gas leak. Open the doors and
windows so any gas can release
outside, and call your heating equipment service professional
as soon as possible and be sure they know you
think you could have a gas leak.
Mold or Musty
Your heating and
cooling equipment function together to keep you safe
and cozy throughout the entire year.
Since air conditioning systems can cause condensation buildup, moisture can manifest in your air
duct system and produce mold, creating
the musty or moldy odor. If you turn on your heating
system or AC system
and smell an odor like this, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. We’ll come over right away
to inspect your duct system and perform
an indoor air quality analysis. We can then provide you recommendations
on how to get rid of the source of the stench
and make sure your HVAC system is
ready to keep you toasty and healthy all winter long.
Electrical or Burning
There are multiple things that could be going
on if you smell an electrical or burning odor,
all of which should demand your attention and should not be ignored.
If you have this smell coming from your furnace, it’s probable something is
overheating or may be an indication of wiring
problems. Shut off your heating
equipment ASAP and call your furnace professional
to provide a thorough diagnosis.
