Nuts in the Furnace: A Squirrely Tale of Furnace Cleaning by Vacu-Man

Ah, the joys of furnace cleaning! You might think it’s all dust bunnies and lint, but let me tell you, we’ve seen it all. From pickle ornaments to treasure chests and toys, the furnace seems to be the Bermuda Triangle of household items. But this past week, we stumbled upon something that truly cracked us up—nuts in the furnace! Yes, you read that right. Walnuts and acorns, to be precise.

The Nutty Discovery

When we first arrived at the homeowner’s residence, they mentioned hearing a scratching sound coming from the furnace. Now, we’ve heard some strange noises in our time—40 years in the business will do that to you—but this was a new one. So, we popped open the furnace and lo and behold, it was like stumbling upon a squirrel’s secret stash. Walnuts and acorns were piled high, evidence of a furry friend looking for a warm and cozy winter home.

Wiring: A Squirrel’s Delight

You might be wondering, “Why the furnace?” Well, it turns out that many squirrels have a penchant for wiring. Yes, those chewy, sodium-flavored wires are like candy to them. Car owners often find their stored vehicles won’t start the next season because a squirrel has had a feast on the electrical system. In this case, our squirrel friend bypassed the wiring buffet and went straight for the main course—a pile of nuts stored inside the furnace.
