It’s Time to Turn on the Furnace! Do You Smell That?

Turning on heat

It’s that time of year again when we put on the flannel pajamas, pull out the sweaters and put the logs in the fire place. Many of us will (if you haven’t already) begin to turn on the furnaces in our homes. I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and my mom would not let us turn the furnace on until November in an effort to save on utility costs Brrrr! When we did turn it on, we would always have a burning dusty smell. I never knew what caused that. I learned years later when I started Daffy Ducts Air Duct Cleaning in Atlanta, GA.

The smell is basically dust (which could also contain other contaminates i.e. dander, mold, and dust mites) burning in your system. Here’s what happens: the air ducts, furnace and coils build up an accumulation of dust over the years. This dust is redistributed through your homes. It’s taken in through your returns, run through the air handler and coils and then passed back into your home.

Consider these statistics:




-indoor air pollution is ranked among the top 5 environmental dangers to the public. (EPA)

-Children and the elderly are especially affected by polluted indoor air. (Department of Consumer Affairs)-Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in indoor air can be 2 to 5 times greater than in outdoor air. (EPA)

-The levels of some hazardous pollutants in indoor air has been found to be up to 70 times greater than in outdoor air. (EPA)

-Most people spend 60% to 90% of their time indoors. (American Lung Association & EPA)

-Airflow problems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 15 percent. (

-A buildup of .042 inches of dirt on a heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21%. (EPA)


At Daffy Ducts air duct cleaning in Atlanta our trained technicians take great care in cleaning the air ducts and furnace and sanitizing and disinfecting the entire system and provide a before and after video inspection on every job. An optimum time to get air duct cleaning is when it is time to fire up that furnace. Air duct cleaning can help increase your system’s efficiency which will help with energy cost savings, reduce the amount of contaminates which can potentially affect your health, and reduce dust in your home.
