What Was That Smell When I Turned The Heat On?

We’re all familiar with how weird the heater can smell when it’s turned on for the first time in several months. But what smells are normal and what smells are cause for concern? Here are some reasons your heater might smell odd and what you should do about it.

  • Heater smells like rotten eggs.

If your heating unit smells like rotten eggs, this indicates that you may have a natural gas leak. If you detect this odor, leave your home as quickly as possible and call your local gas company for immediate service. Typically, natural gas is known to be odorless — but gas companies add the chemical Mercaptan (harmless) to help homeowners detect a leak. Natural gas is poisonous, so be sure to take action right away.

  • Heater smells like gas.

When you fill up your vehicle’s gas tank, typically there’s a potent smell that lingers per gallon. In your home, the gas happens to be of a different blend and scent — but it still comes with that evident gas smell. If that’s the case, then it’s possible that your unit might have a pipe leak.

Unlike that rotten egg smell, you won’t have to run out of your home to take precaution — but it’s crucial to call Pipe Wrench right away to help repair the problem and keep you out of harm’s way. If this smell is avoided for a few hours, then it can turn into a dangerous situation that could have initially been avoided.

  • Heater smells like it’s burning.

When your unit happens to smell as if it’s burning, then that’s a clear sign that it needs to be shut off, immediately. The reason behind this “electrical nightmare” is that your unit is probably overheating itself when trying to heat your home.

Just like the first two smells mentioned, this is also quite dangerous since it could have the potential to start a fire — which will cause a series of irreversible damage. Of course, there is a possibility that an old air filter is creating the electric-based odor, but if you doubt that’s the case, then reach out to our team for assistance as soon as possible.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"Adam Bunch and Salwan were our technicians. They were very professional, courteous, thorough, and we feel they did a very good job. They were both very personable, friendly, and genuinely take pride in their profession. We feel very confident in the work that they did. We have an older home built in the mid 1980s with old, failing hex water lines along with some copper fittings. We needed new lines installed and they did a good job with it. I would recommend them to other people. In comparison, the price is more expensive than some other businesses in this area for the same work, but we feel that the guarantee that comes with Pipe Wrench work brings accountability. We will use this service again in the future."

Amy C.

"Very timely. The first time I used this service I had a thermostat replaced in my hot water heater. They were quick and professional and was fairly priced. I'm in the middle of my second experience at a relatives home for hot water heater replacement. They were able to get a tech out for evaluation the same day we called (today) about a problem and have scheduled the replacement for the next day. The tech was polite, professional and advised us of all our options in a way that was easily understood. I highly recommend Pipe Wrench services."

Sasha N.

"Ryan and Tyler were fantastic! As soon as they got to our home they set expectations for all the work they were going to perform. They kept us posted on the status of the job throughout the time they were working and reviewed everything with us when the job was complete. They were professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would highly recommend them and the team at Pipe Wrench for any plumbing needs! Although I hope we won't have to use their services again, if we ever have the need for a plumber in the future, they will be the first people we call!"

Katey M.

"They came on time with texts and calls ahead of time to ensure I knew who was coming (with a picture) and when they'd be there. Kyle was professional, personable and didn't try to sell me more than I needed. He worked with the scheduling to get me scheduled that evening, even though I couldn't be there for the install. The installation was prompt and they were clean (again with forewarning and pictures of who was coming). They are my new go to company. Thank you."

Mary W.

"Our technician showed up on time and very professional. This company never tried to take advantage of my older mom. Which some in the past have. Very thorough in explaining everything he did and the cost. They came the very next morning. My mom’s A/C had gone out the day before on a scorching hot day and week. I would highly recommend this company. Very good people."
