Furnace

I have a 99 C.C. and when I turn on the furnace it produces a very musty, unpleasant smell. Does anybody have any ideas to alleviate this problem?

If it is a forced air LP furnace, suggest a thorough cleaning of the ductwork, including the return. Was the coach closed up and infrequently used or used in a humid environment?

OK, a 40 footer Intrigue. You could have a Hurricane diesel fired boiler or a regular propane furnace. Since you said furnace, I assume it is propane fired so you need to take it apart and clean it out. You could have a varmint that built a nest in it

Just read you have the propane unit so clean the unit

My LP furnace has a detectable smell for about the first 2 minutes of operation, but it does not operate very often. We use free electric where possible.

Thanks everyone for your ideas. I think a through cleaning will do the job.

As an afterthought, you could go to one of the big box stores and buy a chimney sweeping set of brushes and clean the air ducts. Might not be a bad idea for all of us running the AC and heat pumps.
