Furnace Odors

An Odor at Furnace Start-up Is a Potential Health Risk!

When you stop to think about it, cleaning ductwork without the ability to check the effectiveness of the work is as silly as sweeping your kitchen floor blindfolded!

If your home or office furnace gives off an acrid or pungent odor when it first starts up, it may indicate a potential health risk.

This odor is caused by airborne dust and household chemicals that have settled on the furnace. These are “burnt” off as the furnace heats up. The main source of this problem is from unclean, or poorly filtered ductwork where dust, pet hair and debris have settled and decayed over the years.

Since most homeowners don’t see the filth that the air you breathe passes through when your furnace runs, the old adage applies, “out of sight — out of mind!” Unfortunately, the neglected ductwork still bears a cost…mainly your health.

The difference between a good job and a poor one is simply time, effort and commitment. A good job will typically take a good part of the day to perform. The best way to tell if it has been done right is if the company cleaning it has no problem helping you spot check it when they’re done. In fact, because we take the needed time to do the job right, our company will offer to show you any part of your system when we’re done. We even have infra-red cameras to make it easy to see what your ducts look like before and after the job is done.

Without this assurance, you may be setting yourself up to get less than a quality job. Why would you want to pay someone who isn’t willing to help you ensure that you got what you paid for?

When arranging to have your ducts cleaned, you’ll find wisdom in the old adages: “Seeing is believing!”, “You get what you pay for”, and “A job worth doing is worth doing right.”
