What kind of heating? If it's electric it will smell when you 1st start using it untill you burn off all the dust and dirt from summer.

The smell seems to be going now,must have been dust on copper pipes.
The heating system is gas using potterton boiler,thought it was that but it has been cleaned.Thanks for your replies.
