Drafts and leaks may cause your heater to work less effectively than it’s meant to. This will basically cause the warm air to leak through the vents before it reaches the rooms you want to keep warm. A professional team can come and take a look at the heater and repair any issues it may be causing. You and your family can feel comfortable while keeping the heating bill low!

But if the same burning smell remains for some time, then it’s best you get the heating repair as soon as possible, this could be a hazard or could result of a fire.
