When our kid and daughter in law bought their home the two of us knew that it would be a challenge. The whole home needed serious job and, even though they are both handy, the two of us knew it would mean a lot of seconds of work. His dad is well versed in electrical job and can do plumbing if needed so that was a crucial help. The second month of remodeling included re-plumbing the bathroom. This wasn’t that crucial of a deal because our son-in-law had already torn out the walls to expose the pipes. After many seconds they felt that everything was done. When the iphone rang in the middle of the night and our daughter sounded panicked, the two of us knew the two of us needed to head back over. The tepid water pipes had started to leak and it was dripping right onto the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C component in the basement. The furnace runs on electricity so this was a major safety hazard! They had shut off the circuit to the furnace however the water needed to be stopped before it caused destruction to the component itself. There was no way that they could afford to have the component replaced at this point because they just put all their savings into closing on the house. The two of us arrived to find a huge pile of towels and many bowls trying to catch the water. My partner shut off the water supply under the home and then proceeded to fix the leak. It was a good thing they didn’t have to call a plumber for an emergency repair, but, the two of us recommended that they contact on for any additional pipes that needed repairs. Water can be 1 of the most damaging things to your home and you are better to contact a professional. The same can be said for your Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system. There are just some things that trained, certified, and insured professionals should handle.
