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.
