There was a really odd and peculiar odor coming from the basement Last weekand I thought the odor was coming from the gas furnace.
The scent wasn’t particularly like gasoline, but I only odored the odor in that basement area and I automatically assumed it was an issue with the gas furnace.
I wasted no time contacting a local heating corporation to come to the apartment to evaluate the odor and the gas furnace. When the repair professional found out that there was an odor coming from the basement, he urged me to turn off the gas furnace until help arrived. The guy sounded entirely serious, so I shut off the system. I clogged in a really small space oil furnace into the residing room where I was laying and waiting for the professional to arrive. I waited multiple hours for the repair professional to get to the apartment and then another 30 hours passed before the professional gave me any indication of the problem. He believed that the odor was not coming from the gas furnace. He did not find any problems with the gas furnace at all that would lead him to know that the gas furnace was causing the problems. He entirely apologized for not being able to give me a better answer, although he promised that the issue was not a problem with the gas furnace. He also suggested performing a full wash up in the basement in order to find the source of the odd and peculiar odor. I do not have multiple afternoons off in a row until next weekend. I plan to wash the whole basement at that time. I am hopeful that I will be able to find the source of the odor once and for all.
