The noises were frightening

A few years ago, I had recently moved to a new city to begin living with our partner, we had previously been doing long distance across the country.

  • I moved into her duplex, and got settled, then that night, we both started hearing a different wheezing sound in the bedroom, almost like intermittent breathing.

It was totally freaky, so I got up to go investigate and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary, we both tossed and turned throughout the night, jumping to the worst possible scenarios in our heads. In the day, my partner called our local Heating and A/C business to come investigate, as the noise sounded like it was coming from the heater, and when our Heating and A/C tech finally arrived, he looked around all of our vents and didn’t seem to find anything, however he finally was closely inspecting our wall heater, which is our primary source of heat on cold mornings, and resides in a corner of the bedroom, however my Heating and A/C tech removed the grate from the front of our wall furnace and realized there was a partially melted kazoo in front of the pilot light. We realized that when air would be produced from our heater, it would blow through the melted kazoo, hence creating a noise like creepy breathing. Our Heating and A/C tech removed the kazoo and cleaned off all melted remnants of it from our Heating and A/C unit, and our heating method worked perfectly after that, which was amazing. The different thing was, we still have no way of knowing how the kazoo got there, as my partner had not heard the noise since the evening I moved in.
