A leaking water heater can turn from an inconvenience to a major emergency in no time at all. Should your water heater burst it will flood your basement or utility room with dozens of gallons of water, not to mention the possibility of water from the water line. If you fail to have this taken care of right away, it will cost you thousands of dollars in future repairs as you’ll need to remove mold and replace damaged goods. That’s why if you ever run into an emergency with your water heater, you should contact the emergency hot water repair services of Airco Service Inc. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Damaged Hot Water Tank
If your hot water tank has sprung a leak and you’re unable to turn the water off it may spill dozens of gallons of water into your home. Even an inch or two of water will lead to the development of mold and other problems within your house. Prolonged water exposure not only increases the chance of mold growth but it increases your eventual repair bill. Instead, it is important to contact a professional service provider like Airco Service Inc. and have it taken care of right away.
Hot water tank emergencies don’t just stem from problems with the water line. If your water heater is connected to a gas line, this may turn into an even more dangerous situation. A damaged gas line can leak gas into your house. A single spark may cause catastrophic damage and injury to everything in your home, including your family. That is why if you smell gas or if you believe the gas line running to your water heater has been damaged, you need to leave the house right away. Once safely out of the house call the team at Airco Service.
Water heater emergencies do not just happen during normal business hours. These problems take place early in the morning, late at night, on weekends and holidays. You should not be forced to suffer through a major appliance malfunction while also putting yourself in harm’s way just because of when the problem begins. So, no matter the time of day or year, if you run into an emergency with your water heater pick up your phone and call the team at Airco Service Inc. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
