New to the site. HVAC question
Helly everyone, I'm new to the forum and I thought this site looked great for me because I like doing the work of my own projects.
I've recently bought a house and ran into an issue that I'm not sure what the best way would be to go about it. I wanted to buy a new furnace and replace ducting due to the old house and ancient furnace. Due to the funds I have available I decided to hold for a year and just get the ducting and furnace cleaned.
So I figured not to turn the furnace on before cleaning. I hired a company to clean the furnace, and they cleaned a load of junk out of the ducting. They had fired it up but not long enough to make the fan run. After they left I turned the furnace on and it filled my house with ash tray smelling smoke. I've learned that I was sold a house, aparently very cleaned, that was owned by a smoker.
My question is, how in the world do I get the smoke smell out of the ducting and furnace. Will it eventually burn off or do I have to replace everything. My place reeks of an ash tray full of cigeratte butts, and I don't even want to run my furnace again.
