Why a Burst Pipe Is a Plumbing Emergency
A burst pipe can be one of the most severe plumbing emergencies at your Aurora house. When it first occurs you might think you’re in the clear if only a small amount of water trickles out. However, it can soon get much worse, very quickly. As the hole expands, hundreds of gallons of water can fill your home. This can cause water to seep into the walls, insulation, and electrical wiring. Eventually, this can even lead to the formation of mold and mildew. To limit the amount of damage, it’s crucial to call the professionals at Befort Plumbing & Heating as soon as possible.
Common Water Heater Problems
How many times a day does your household rely on hot water coming from the faucets? Every shower or bath. Each time you wash the dishes. Every load of laundry. And likely countless others, right? So when a problem occurs it can cause a disruption to your household. That’s why it’s important to schedule professional repairs at the first sign of an issue. Some common problems you might experience with your unit can include:
- Lack of hot water: Perhaps the most obvious - and common - issue with your unit is a lack of hot water. For gas-powered water heaters, this could be due to an extinguished pilot light which can simply be relit. It could also signal a severely damaged heating element that needs to be replaced.
- Leaking: If your unit is leaking, consult a plumber to determine if the unit can be repaired or if it should be replaced.
- Excess noise: If you hear loud noises coming from the unit it could signal a damaged heating element or a buildup of sediment inside the unit that needs to be removed by a professional.
- Cracks: If you notice cracks in your unit, have a plumber inspect them to determine if they can be repaired or if your system should be replaced.
