Rat Damage to an HVAC Duct in the Crawl Space of a House in Athens, Georgia
Rat damage to a heating duct in Athens
This kind of situation can become an absolute nightmare for a homeowner.
If the rat damage is only to the insulation outside the flexible duct, it's not that big a deal. The duct can be replaced. It may be difficult in a tight crawl like this, but it's really just a lot of grunting more so than a major problem.
If the rats get into the duct, on the other hand, then you have a big problem. The rats will contaminate the duct wherever they travel. Worse yet, if they get to the furnace itself, especially if it's running at the time, they can cause major damage to the blower, motor, or other parts of the system.
This is one reason why it's important to keep rats and other animals out of the crawl space, which is exactly what we're going to do once we repair the damage the rats caused to this house in Athens, Georgia.
