JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - It may not feel like it outside, but those colder temperatures are coming and when they do you want to ensure your house is prepared.

With the forecast showing lows this upcoming weekend in the 40s many will be turning their heat on for the first time.

When you do, you might smell smoke. But Mike Krzton, owner of Elite Climate Control and Air, said it’s okay.

“Somebody says ‘Hey, I just turned it on and it smells like it is on fire.’ That means it needs to be cleaned,” Krzton said. “Things like dust get in there and the motor still draws air.”

He suggests everyone get their heater cleaned out before the temperatures drop because you don’t want it to not work when needed.
