I had a Goodman furnace installed 2 weeks ago. At startup

Customer Question

I had a Goodman furnace installed 2 weeks ago. At startup there was smoke that set off the smoke alrms. The installer said it was normal as the startup burns off oils used in production and storage. We still get occaisional smell of burnt oil, not terrible, but noticeable to the point of needing to open a window.
