When Should You Call Hanson’s Plumbing & Heating?April 15, 2019
When your plumbing or HVAC system malfunctions, hundreds of questions may run through your mind. Can this be repaired? How much will this cost to replace? Why me? If it’s an issue that needs emergency repair service, save yourself the trouble and further damage to your home by calling the experts. But how do you know if the problem needs immediate repair? Here are some signs you should call Hanson’s Plumbing & Heating.
When water freezes inside your plumbing system, the ice can burst or crack your pipes, causing water leaks that can damage flooring, drywall, or your home’s foundation.
Low Water Pressure
Trickling sinks, low-flow showers, or long dishwashing cycles could be a sign of low water pressure caused by clogged, corroded, or leaking pipes.
No Hot Water
If you don’t have hot water, your water heater has likely malfunctioned. Water heaters may be electric or gas, so there could be problems with the gas line, pilot light, or other hazardous components.
If your lights flicker when your HVAC system kicks on or you hear buzzing and humming, it could be a sign of electrical issues with your furnace ignition, circuit breaker, or wiring.
If your home begins to smell musty or you smell sewage, you could have a plumbing leak.
If you detect a rotten egg smell, your furnace could be leaking natural gas from the heat exchanger. This is a dangerous situation, so you should leave the building immediately and call your gas utility from a neighbor’s home. Do not turn on any lights or use a phone while still inside the home. Do not return until a technician has reported that the home is safe.
Don’t ignore excessive noises like banging, rattling, hissing, or screaming sounds coming from your HVAC equipment. A struggling HVAC system is not reliable, energy efficient, or safe for your family.
