24/7 Emergency Plumbing Repair

Not every plumbing problem is an emergency, but if there’s a leak you can’t stop and/or water you can’t clean up, you need to act fast. A severe water heater leak or broken pipe, for example, can quickly turn into a geyser. All that water can significantly damage your floors, walls and ceilings. You may also need an emergency plumber if you’ve lost access to a critical facility—for example, if your only toilet is clogged and overflowing, or your water heater has failed and you need hot water for sterilization.

Common plumbing emergencies include:

  • Burst/frozen pipes
  • Broken fixtures and pipes
  • Flooding/standing water
  • Severe clogs and backups
  • Failing sump pump
  • Severe water heater leaks
  • Washer, dishwasher and other appliance leaks
  • Sewer system backups

24/7 Emergency Air Conditioner & Heater Repair

In the blazing heat of summer or the sub zero blast of a Chicago winter, a functioning HVAC system isn’t just about comfort—it’s a necessity. If your system begins malfunctioning, is producing strange sounds or odors that have you concerned, or stops working entirely, repairs can’t always wait. When the temperatures outdoors are dangerously high or low, you need a working HVAC system now.

Our first goal on an emergency HVAC service call is to get the A/C or heat restored quickly and safely. If the malfunction was the result of a deeper issue relating to the age or maintenance of your air conditioner, furnace or boiler, we’ll discuss it with you so you know all your options.

What To Do Before Calling for Emergency Furnace Repair

24/7 Emergency Electrical Repair

Electrical problems wait for no man. Some lead to a loss of power, while others can increase the risk of electrical fires. Unlike some home emergencies like a minor clogged drain, emergency electrical repairs are potentially dangerous and should only be handled by a trained electrician.

Common electrical emergencies include:

  • On again, off again, flickering lights
  • Tripped circuit breaker that will not reset, causing outage in part of all of the home
  • Storm damage such as tree limbs falling on overhead service
  • Burning smell, fire, smoke or excessive sparking from outlets

If you’re not sure if your electrical problem is an emergency, please call! We’re happy to help.
