Cool or Warm Air Pushing Through Vent

Having cold air coming from the vents when the heater is on, for example, is a little more obvious than others; and vice versa. Presuming there is not a thermostat malfunction, there can be a number of problems wrong with the HVAC system such as reduced airflow/loss of pressure, fuel combustion problem, or leaky ductwork that is causing the wrong air temperature.
Spikes in Heating Energy Bills

Taking the time to compare the energy use during the same time the previous year, however, can potentially help early detection. Any bills that appear higher during the same time of year may indicate a problem when you take the time to compare with corresponding problems. Keep in mind that this only applies when the circumstances are similar, as the difference in weather and other circumstances, such as fewer building occupants and less equipment could both account for more heat usage can all impact the demand on your system. Unexplained energy spikes typically suggest a reflecting problem the HVAC system that is suggests inefficiency.
Odors from Furnace or Boiler
The burning-like should never be ignored and it often signifies a serious issue where many culprits can be the source, on the commercial space’s nature. A problem with the heater can all be the source of the smell, as well as electrical problems, office equipment overheating.

When the heater starts up initially, the smell can be dust burning off the heating elements, where the odors pass through your vents. There is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, however, once you are comfortably into winter, and the burning odor is detected.
