Do you have a leaking faucet or broken toilet? How is the heating and cooling system functioning in your home? If you are dealing with serious issues in the winter, you need to have them repaired quickly. Not only does a broken furnace system lead to problems with keeping warm, if its too cold in the home, it can lead to frozen pipes and other concerns. Here are some things that tend to be the most problematic in the winter.
Replacing or Remodeling Fixtures
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to replace a toilet, install a new sink, or add a new water heater to the home, it is a good idea to call a plumber immediately. They will be able to make suggestions on the type of fixture to purchase but will also be able to come out and properly install it for you. Many people forget simple things like adding an extra layer of caulk to a new shower or remembering to let the new wax ring for your toilet seal before placing the toilet in use.
Hot Water Problems
Checking on the water heater is usually the issue for hot water problems. If you find that the temperature was turned down, simply turn it back up to see if this resolves the problem. There are a few things that could be problematic here such as a blown fuse, bad overload switch, or heating element issues. A skilled plumber will be able to fix the water heater problems, hopefully saving you from investing in a new water heater.
For hair in a drain, you may find that a simple cleaning of the elements you can see and a bit of Drano could do the trick, but for serious problems it helps to call a plumber. Sewer line stoppages can be caused due to tree roots in the line, which requires a professional cleaning of your lines. The lines may also need to be properly flushed as well to remove the sewer smell that you may be experiencing in your home.
