sulfur smell

What could be the cause of a sulfur smell in our basement? We've been having intermittent problems with our boiler over the past 3 months. The contact points had to be adjusted and the ignitor had to be replaced. Up until a week and a half ago, the boiler made this rumbling sound when starting up. And now we have this smell. Could this be related to the boiler or something else? Thanks for your help. Lillian

It very well could be the boiler. I suggest you get a pro in to look at it ASAP. You should be getting NO odor from the boiler and any odor is an indication that something is wrong. Have the service person run a complete combustion analysis.
