I don’t know how it got there, or even if it was there when we moved in; All I know is that when the HVAC specialist arrived to labor on the a/c unit, we were both horrified at what he found! Every one of us were so scared that both of us laughed until we were holding our sidesâ€¦ He said he had never seen the carcass of a dead rat before, & finding 1 inside the a/c device was so horrible that he screamed.
- He apologized & said he had never screamed love that before.
I had never screamed love that before, either, but neither of us expected to see a dead rat, in or around the a/c unit, although he had to find out where it came from, i distraught that some of the noise we heard in the HVAC duct was rats running inside it. I couldn’t figure out how the rats could get in there, the HVAC specialist told me it took a quarter sized hole for a rat to get in. He was going to look at the HVAC duct & see if there were any holes in the HVAC duct.He shook his head & said the rat wasn’t in the HVAC duct. Somehow, it had gotten into the a/c device itself. He didn’t guess the fins were large enough for it to squeeze inside, however stranger things had happened. He got rid of the remains & diagnosed the a/c unit. He said if we heard any more noises, we should call him & he would come out & do a complete inspection of the system.
