Here are some of the common types of problems you might encounter throughout the year with your HVAC and plumbing systems and with appropriately qualified and experienced technicians, these can be easily fixed too.
Recurring Plumbing Problems/Repairs
Sounds silly, but one common problem we hear from our customers is noisy flushing toilets. You wouldn't think the potty would be a source of irritation or concern in a home or business - but it is. Abnormal sounds after flushing however are easily fixed. Typically we find out diagnosis is a damaged fill valve.
Another common plumbing repair through our business is running toilets. This means continuous water running even when the toilet is not in use and this causes massive water wastage. Our repair? We fix the defective flapper.
Another popular repair for us is the outdoor unit seems noisy. While heat pumps are meant to be noisy, typically there's always a trigger for strange or overly loud noises. This could be anything from the fan blade hitting something, to bad compressor valves or bad motors.
Even as HVAC and plumbing technology is improving and evolving, these systems will continue to require regular and/or emergency maintenance and repair from certified technicians.
