I had a new HVAC system installed a few months ago. All of a sudden
today, from one of the vent, we are getting a burnt like smell coming
from one vent. i checked down stairs where the unit is and i don't
smell anything. When the floor where the vent is, the smell is strong.
Any clues as to who to determine what this is? Other than that smell,
which is starting to fill the house...the unit seems to be working
(Unfortunately, i can't call the contractor that installed the system
because he's just disappeared...no one seems to be able to get a hold
I would say check your belt on the squirrel cage but I'm betting it doesn't
have one if it's a new system. But worth pulling the cover off to check for
something falling against a warm part and making an odor?
Good luck, Rich
It seems to be coming from only one vent. i checked the house, but
nothing seems to be burning or smoking. I looked at the unit and took
off the side cover and put my nose to work...no burnt smell by the unit
or in the basement. this is driving me crazy..

Crazy...this turned out to be a cabinet highlight light (the ones on
the top of the cabinet) that the painter had turned upside down (such
that the light was shining directly on to the cabinet). It almost
burnt right through the cabinet...
