What Is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?
Plumbing emergencies don’t occur specifically during business hours as you use your plumbing around the clock. However, you may be wondering if some issues are simply urgent and need to be taken care of soon or if certain problems are, in fact, emergencies. Here are a few examples of each type of situation:
- Burst pipe – this is an emergency and failing to call us immediately can result in high water bills and increasing damage to your home
- Frozen pipe – having frozen pipes can lead to burst pipes and defrosting them without proper knowledge can actually cause them to break
- Blocked toilet – if there is a second toilet in your home, it could be safe to use until morning. Unfortunately, with blocked lines, it affects your whole home’s plumbing system and can cause the other toilet to overflow as well. In addition, you may be putting yourself at risk for a burst pipe due to water pressure
- Leaky faucets – while a leaky faucet is annoying and can cause increased water bills, it is also not an all-out emergency
- No hot water – this is an unpleasant problem but is totally up to your preference and tolerance as to whether it is an emergency. This is an issue that is all about your comfort–if you feel it is an emergency, then it is!
Keep in mind that when you call for an emergency plumbing service, you will never pay premium prices! You will receive great service at the standard cost it would be during normal business hours.
The Importance of Urgent Heating Services
If you wake up in the middle of the night freezing and can’t seem to get warm, your heater may not be working properly. Although you could snuggle up with blankets and use body heat, it is still quite miserable. In addition, the elderly and small children are susceptible to extremely cold temperatures and can become ill with hypothermia if left exposed for too long.
If your heater, furnace, or boiler are failing to produce any heat – this is an emergency situation. When heaters do not function properly, they can also produce carbon monoxide gas, which is deadly. Although you may feel you can survive the cold, it is still wise to call a professional sooner rather than later!
