The Heat Is On...What's that smell?

I turned on the heat. What's that burning smell?

In some areas of Florida the heater may only be used once or twice a year. So, what's that awful smell when the heater finally does get switched on? That depends.

For most of the year, the air is being cooled in a Florida home. Contaminants like dust and pet dander build up in the HVAC system and air ducts. Generally, the burning odor is from the dust burning off. However, a lingering musty odor (after a few days of heat), might indicate the presence of mold.

Symptoms of mold exposure include:

1.Nasal and sinus congestion

2.Runny nose

3.Respiratory problems like wheezing and difficulty breathing

4.Chest tightness


6.Throat irritation
