10 seconds of oil smell when oil furnace starts up
When my oil furnace (forced air, no boiler) is starting up, and I'm sitting or lying on my bed, I smell oil. The smell lasts only 5 or 10 seconds and stops either when or before (not sure) the blower starts circulating air through the house. Now that my computer is in the basement, I spend hours only 25 feet (and around the corner through an open door) from the furnace and I never smell oil. Though once i noticed the smell when I was on the landing from the first floor to the basement. My nose is about 5 feet off the floor! I haven't noticed any smell in the kitchen, or on the rare occasions when I'm standing right next to the furnace and it starts up, but I have smelled it in another bedroom where I used to have the computer. Both br's are on the second floor. When I'm lying down in my BR, my nose is only about 2 feet from the duct, and sitting at the desk in the other BR, only about 4 feet .
I found that the furnace has been using a hollow nozzle, when the name plate on it calls for a hollow nozzle. Could that be (part of) the problem?
The 2 year old CO detector in my BR reads zero, and the 8 year old CO detector also reads zero. (Is there any point to keep using an 8-year old detector?)
Thanks a lot.
