Furnace maintenance in Edmonton has become important considering the dust and pollution in the industrial area. Sometimes a furnace can release a pungent smell which makes it difficult for the people inside the building to breathe. Have you ever wondered what the different odors coming out of your furnace might be?
Here are different types of odors which you need to be aware of:
• Burning Odor
Usually at the beginning of the season when the furnace is turned on for the first time, a dusty burning odor is experienced. This is because of the residual dust inside the vents from the off season. Ideally, the smell should only stay for a couple of hours. If the smell remains then the air filters may need to be replaced.
• Mechanical Odor
When the odor coming out of your furnace smells like burnt rubber it indicates that your furnace needs service. This odor points to something more harmful and a problematic issue which is on its way but hasn’t yet struck.
• Electrical Odor
The smell of a burning metal indicates that a certain part of the furnace is heating up where it should not be. This odor should not be ignored as it may lead to a fire. The possibility that there might be an operational failure should be made a top priority. Call a professional team as soon as you can and get the problem fixed.
• Bad Egg Odor
This is the worst and most dangerous type of smell you might smell from your furnace. If you smell a rotten egg smell in the building, it means that there is a gas leak. The premises need to be evacuated immediately until the gas leak has been taken care of.
In any of the situations mentioned above, make sure you get help from a professional furnace and plumber specialist in Edmonton.
