I have noticed a strange smell in my home. It came up a few days ago. I thought it was Freon but I learned that Freon is odorless. The weird thing is that the smell comes and goes. Two story cape built in 1988, No HVAC, forced hot water 2 zone furnace in basement, separate water heater. The smell wanders from room to room for random periods of time (several minutes to several hours) and then completely goes away. I have not smelled it in the basement.

Another poster with similar issue said it smelled like "Raid". Ok maybe it does smell a little like raid. In fact I did smell a Raidy odor outside the house a day or so ago. VERY similar to the mystery inside smell come to think of it.

A Raidy-refrigorator-airconditioner smell is the best I can come up with. The sites I've visited all say "just keep sniffing" but I'm getting dizzy!

Now I am off to smell the floors and walls. Help!
