楼主 (文学城)

两个星期前新换了 water heater。会和这个有关吗?

这个涉及到安全问题,不敢掉以轻心,但是又实在没有idea会是什么原因。不管是furnace 还是water heater,如果有burn的气味,跟抽烟的味道还是不一样吧?租客两人都不抽烟,这两天他们好像也没发现有邻居在外面抽烟。会是什么可能的原因呢?

谢谢!

事后诸葛
先把空气过滤器网子换了再说

空气过滤器网子好久没有换吧?

换了后再继续检查追踪。

还有,water heater 的出气口是否通畅?

波大的意思是这是个很容易查出的问题?

就是男主人发的信。两个很好的租客,3年了,总是提前交租,啥事儿没有。他非常负责任的把上上下下里里外外都看了一遍,找不到原因。因为他有allergy,所以filter换得很勤,而且都是买最高级别的filter. 下面是他的messages (我问了他邻居抽不抽烟,外面的intake vent离自己的exhaust vent 和邻居的exhaust vent多远等问题):

1. For some reason we have been smelling Cigarette small in the unit?  It started about 2 days ago.  You really only can smell it at the Intake Vent at the top of the stairs. Can not seem to see where it is coming from? Both of us are non smokers and do not have company over. So we are a little concern?   2. The smell comes and goes.  Some times you can smell it as you walk by.  Others you have to put your face to the vent. Having a air cleaning running helps I noticed.   3. I am guessing that considering where it is?  that the Central Air Filters I buy ( I by the highest rating since I have allergies) is properly stopping the smell to go throu out the unit.  Keeping it local to the top of the stairs (2nd fl)   4. More Info.  I opened the attic and I did not smell anything there. ( I did not walk around up ther since I do not know what areas are sturdy enought for that) Just staing on the steps with a flash light for a while.   5. There are no outside vents.  Besides the the AC unit which is about ~ 6' apart. 
for the Upstairs Intake.  I do not know if it is fully sealed off between my unit to the neighbor on the right. I took off the vent screen and shined a flash light in it. So that is where my curiosity comes from. They are new to the area.  They moved in during the fall last year. And Elderly couple in their 70's
