Furnace Check today
I'm prepping for a trip in a few weeks and figured I'd better check the heating system out just in case Mother Nature throws a curve down here in south Texas.
I've had the unit for about 9 months, but have never needed to use it.
It's 39 degrees outside today, good day to test. I turned on the furnace, hear it light, adjusted the fans to auto and let it run, thinking I'm good as the inside temp started to rise by a few degrees.... Then the funny smell you get when a furnace starts to get stronger...then I'm greeted by the smoke alarm going off, scaring the crap out of me! I immediately shut off the furnace and turned off the gas. No visible signs of smoke or fire, After opening the door to turn off the gas and it stopped.
Could this just be the dust that settles or could something serious be going on?
I don't have my all my slides extended, actually only have the main side extended about halfway and can go any further, as there is a concrete pillar next to me in the storage lot. I can see 3 uncovered heat registers, Wondering if one is covered, how many registers should there be?
