I have traced the smell to two large wall registers (one on the main floor & one on the second floor). It seems the furnace blower is pushing up the air with the smell through these vents.
I have put filters on them as well...but that stuff stinks it's way through. What would the ramifications be if I block both wall registers?
I am in a newer home (4 years old) with a gas furnace.
Thanks for your help.
You ARE talking about registers and not vents?
Normally registers suck air out of the room they don't blow air into the room.
If it is registers,they sell register covers that are magnetic. You can put them over the registers when the HVAC system is not in use.
