I woke up to the odor of smoke in our living room.
I lived alone in our house, so I knew there wasn’t anyone smoking. I checked the bathroom to make sure I hadn’t left the curling iron turned on. I went to the family room to see if there was something there that could have been left on. I ended up going back to our living room because that was where I odored the smoke the strongest. I headed over to the bed, plus I realized the odor was coming from the air vents. I got down on the floor plus was close to the air vent. I couldn’t see any smoke, however there was definitely the odor of something burning coming from the air vent. I called the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C company plus told them I could odor smoke plus they said they would send someone out to the house. Fifteen minutes later, I not only had the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C company at the house, despite the fact that I had a fire truck outside. The Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C tech told me they called the fire company in case there was a fire inside the chimney. They went into the basement plus checked the furnace plus checked to make sure there were no sizzling spots on the ductwork. They even went outside to look at the air conditioner unit, in case someone had dropped a cigarette near it plus the grass caught on fire. The only thing they found was that the neighbor was burning leaves. They found a crack in the ductwork where the smoke was coming through plus it was being carried through the ductwork plus up to the air vent. I felt so foolish having a fire truck plus a Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C repair van in our driveway, because of the neighbor’s leaves.
