    Well, you could contact an industrial hygienist to do some air sampling.

    New homes have all kinds of odors from off-gassing carpet, VOCs from paint, stains, etc. They eventually go away, but these odors could have masked what has been in the air all along.

    Linda,
    Since we have had such a mild winter it could be related to the heating system directly or indirectly.

    Has the odor seemed to progressively increase in Dec, Jan and Feb ?
