It’s that time of year again, one day it’s hot the next day it’s cold. I turned my heat on for the first time last week, and lost a sweater at lunch because the next day it was quite warm.
Every year at this time I remember that smell when I first turn on the heat. It smells weird like something is burning. Most of the time that smell is from harmless dust that has accumulated over the summer, normally it will burn off and cause no problems. However, anytime you smell something burning you should not ignore it. If it persists for more than a couple hours check your air filters.
