Why Does My Heater Smell Like That?

Monday, October 5th, 2020

That’s a good question! But while it’s a good question, it’s not an unanswerable one. Heaters are pieces of machinery that work similarly to cars, meaning a professional technician can usually tell what’s making a specific smell or noise. That being said, what you really want to be asking is if that smell is normal or abnormal.

A normal smell can be something that your heater makes at the start of the season, while it burns away dust that has collected throughout the summer months. An abnormal smell could be something as brutal as carbon monoxide or a gas leak. Regardless of which particular smell you’re getting, you’re going to want to know if you need help or not.

We provide targeted repairs, maintenance, and help for HVAC systems in Whittier, CA. Keep reading to find the answers you’re looking for, and make sure to call us when you need a quick fix.

Central air conditioners remain very popular. We get that. They’re effective, and they make a lot of sense if you use a forced air heater, too. However, they are far from the only option out there when it comes to whole-house cooling.
