We have been painting a lot over the past few days and had new carpet installed in several rooms. Could the smell be coming from this or is there other problems we should be concerned about.
The furnace (we believe) is the original from when the house was built (1979). We know we are going to need to replace it. Is it just at the end of its life? Also, this is the first we have had oil heat, so we aren't really sure what an oily smell would be. It has an underground tank, could something be wrong there?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are new to all of this and have no idea how to fix this.
