What to Do With Your Electric Fireplace Heater That Smells Like Burning Plastic

Fortunately for you and everyone else, there are some things you can do to change the odor and to make it go away more quickly. If you want to get rid of that electric fireplace heater smell so you can get back to using your house without having to worry about that smell again, here are a few tips: Keep the ash out. Many electric fireplaces have ash trays that you can remove and dispose of in the garbage.

Get the air moving around the coils. The easiest way to help circulate the air in your room is to open up the vents on the bottom and top of your furnace. Some people even use a blower fan to help move the air around.

Make sure your ventilation system is clean. Many things can affect the ventilation in your heating unit. Have you ever thought about what happens to all the smoke when you don’t burn the wick? Inhaling the smoke can irritate your nasal passages and can also cause the cooling unit to overheat. This can end up in the thermostat being closed resulting in very hot rooms. This can be a deadly combination.

Clean your heating unit often. Your combustion chamber will be full of creosote and gunk that has accumulated over time. These items will clog up the vents over time as well as the insides of the unit. Regular cleaning will allow you to have more efficient operation of your heating unit.

If you get an electric heating unit that has a lot of distinctive smells like burning wood, it could mean that the motor has developed a fault. Check the voltage and the current going to the heating unit. The problem may be something small that you can change yourself, but it may require a professional to do. You would not want to risk having your motor fail on you certainly wouldn’t want to pay for repairs out of your pocket. Call a repairman before you do anything else to make sure that the unit will continue to work properly.

If you’re heating unit still works but doesn’t produce much heat, it might be time to call a professional. Something in your venting system is allowing too much heat to escape. They can come in and check things and fix any problems that you might be experiencing with your electric fireplace heater.

An electric fireplace heater that burns wood in the middle should be checked as well. This is very common but a lot of people don’t think about it. There could be a fire in the chimney or the flue pipe that is letting too much moisture build up. This could cause a lot of damage to your home. Make sure that you are keeping your chimney clear of debris and burning embers to prevent any serious issues from happening.

It is important to know the manufacturer of your electric fireplace heater. You should find out if they stand behind their products enough to offer a warranty. A good warranty will give you peace of mind that you will have your heater repaired in case anything unexpected happens. This warranty will also cover damages that may happen to your electric fireplace heater while it is in use or during the course of its normal operation.

Keep your electric fireplace heater clean. You should check for any mineral build up in its tubes and exhaust tube. These mineral build ups can affect the way that your unit produces heat. By removing these deposits from your electric fireplace heater, you will be increasing its overall efficiency.

These are some simple tips that you can use to help keep your electric fireplace heater running efficiently and soothed by minimal maintenance. You may want to consider investing in a remote control so that you can be sure that your electric fireplace heater is off when you aren’t using it. And while you’re at it, you may want to consider investing in an automatic switch so that you don’t have to turn your electric fireplace heater on and off yourself. This way, you can be sure that it is properly ventilated when not in use.
