Why Does My Heater Smell Like It's Burning?

Have you noticed a burning smell coming from your heater every time you turn it on? There are a number of reasons why this could be happening.

Here are some reasons why your heater may be smelling like it's burning:

  • Your heater's air filters are clogged: When your air filters are clogged, this means that the blower motor has to work extra hard, causing it to overheat. Changing your air filters can get rid of this burning smell, and also ensure that your heater is working at optimal levels.
  • There is a plastic object that has made itself in your heater: A foreign plastic object such as a plastic cap or a plastic toy could have made its way into your heater and maybe the reason why your heater smells like it's burning. A heating professional will be able to safely remove the object.
  • Burning dust: If you're turning your heater on for the first time during the colder months, it is likely that the burning odor may be dust that has accumulated from your heater throughout the year that it was turned off and not working.
  • The fan motor may be overheated: Another reason why your heater smells like it's burning could be because your fan motor is overheated. This will typically cause a burning odor that smells like gunpowder. If you notice this, it is critical to switch off your heater and contact a professional as soon as possible.
  • You need to change your heater's oil filter: If you have an oil furnace, a burning smell may be a sign that you need to replace your furnace's oil filter.

If you notice a burning smell coming from your heater, it is important to contact a heating professional as soon as possible to get the situation inspected and properly taken. Taking immediate action is important for ensuring the safety of you and your loved ones.

Why Is My Heater Blowing Cold Air?

There is nothing worse than turning on your heater only to be blasted with cold air. Heating systems blowing cold air is one of the most common heater problems and can be caused by a number of things. Some of these causes are easily fixed and others require the assistance of an HVAC repair specialist. To help you determine when you need to schedule heater repair, it is a good idea to become familiar with the most common causes of this problem.

Below are 8 possible reasons why your furnace is blowing cold air:

  • The air filter is clogged
  • The thermostat fan is set to ON instead of AUTO
  • The thermostat is faulty
  • The pilot light is out
  • There is a faulty thermocouple
  • The ducts are leaking
  • The circuit breaker tripped
  • The flame sensor is dirty

If you’ve changed your filter and ensured your thermostat is on the correct setting and your heater is still blowing cold air, call Jackson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling. Our team can quickly determine which component of your system is causing cold air to be distributed in your home, explain your options to you, and implement the best solution.
