Help! My bedroom smells like maple syrup. I don't know where it is coming from. I think maybe it's the heater?

could be a coolant leak

it's not a coolant leak the refrigerant has no smell and the oil would stink but it would smell like oil
so lets see do you have forced air gas or electric do you smell it when the heat come's on or all the time if you only smell it when the heat come on start checking your vents that is if there not on the ceiling or check the return good luck

Do you or your children eat maple and brown sugar flavored oatmeal? Is it heated in the microwave? My daughter loves that stuff and will eat it day and night. When she does, my house stinks of the stuff and gives me a headache. The microwaves exhaust the smell and the air intake for the AC pushes the smell through the vents.

My house is brand new, well as of one year. In the back bedroom it has a odd smell of maple syrup. A new bed hardly been used and a tv. That's all that's in that room. It's a spare room. Carpet. Blinds. Nothing else. I can't pin point where the smells coming from.
