Fumes from High Efficiency Gas Furnace

We have had this furnace for about 4 years. Every time the cool weather comes and we turn the furnace, one of us can smell what is described as exhaust fumes. I do not notice it as much. However, it is strong enough for the other person living here to feel nauseated and to get cranky. We have had the Sears repair man here to see what is wrong. He can find nothing -- says, some people are more sensitive than others. This is not good as we are both soon going to be retired and will be in the house more.

Any suggestions from anyone?
