Most Common HVAC Emergencies
HVAC systems can last for years with proper maintenance. Even with the best-designed HVAC system, however, problems will occur. Here are the most common HVAC emergencies our customers face:
Any hole in the refrigerant line or closed system will result in a cooling loss. Refrigerant is a chemical that has a low boiling point. When exposed to air, it will boil away, leaving nothing. Your AC may begin to blow warm air or freeze up and require thawing.
Our technicians can get to the bottom of the issue, fixing the leak and refilling your system with refrigerant in no time. You don’t need to suffer in the heat of summer. Let Nicholson take care of your emergency AC repair.
Incorrect installation is one of the most common problems with thermostats. A lot of people think they should install them without using a professional, but this can lead to many problems. A broken thermostat can paralyze your entire HVAC system.
You may notice that the system cycles intermittently or doesn’t hold a steady temperature. These are all signs that the thermostat may require a repair or replacement.
Frozen AC Coils
Frozen AC coils occur when the refrigerant temperature drops below zero. Once that happens, the condensation on the coils freezes solid. This can cause damage to your system and will require thawing. There are a few common causes of frozen AC coils.
One of the most common causes is a lack of airflow through the system. You might also experience frozen AC coils if you run out of refrigerant or have a leak. If your coils are freezing, shut off your system and call a professional immediately.
Furnace Not Heating
Not having heat isn’t an option when the cold of winter settles in. When you turn on your heater, you expect to have warm air blowing through your home. The heater can fail if the air filter isn’t changed or if the ignition has a problem. On older models, the pilot light might go out.
Part of our emergency heating repair service involves checking for all the fundamental causes. If the problem still isn’t discovered, the technician will inspect for less common causes.
If you’re experiencing electrical issues, your HVAC system will suffer. It could throw breakers or turn on and off too often. The problem often lies with the thermostat, but there are other reasons to be concerned. If your system has an electrical short, it can lead to more dire consequences.
It’s imperative that you take any electrical problems seriously. Electrical repairs, when done in a timely fashion, can save you thousands of dollars in the long term.

4 Signs You Need Emergency Plumbing Services
Not every plumbing issue is an emergency, so how do you know when you need emergency plumbing services? Plumbing problems can happen all the time, and if it can’t wait until the next business day, then you need help right away.
1. Burst Pipes
A burst pipe can be a scary experience. When a pipe bursts, it can flood your home with water. This qualifies as an emergency, and the first thing you should do is turn off your home’s water source. This will minimize the water damage until a plumber arrives to repair or replace the damaged pipe.
2. Drain Pipe Leaking
A leaking drain pipe can be an emergency due to the risk of water damage occurring to your home. If it’s a major leak, there are few ways to patch it or stop the leak until the next day. Minor leaks aren’t as big of a deal, but if you’re experiencing a serious pipe leak, you need an emergency plumber right away.
3. Toilet Overflowing
An overflowing toilet is a definite emergency. One thing you can do to prevent further damage is turn off the water to the toilet. The shut-off valve is under the tank and has an oval-shaped knob. Once the flow of water stops, you can plunge the toilet or wait for the plumber to arrive.
4. Sewer Gas Smell
The big problem with sewer gas is that it can be the result of hydrogen sulfide entering the home. If the pipes are working the right way, that’s not going to happen. If they aren’t, exposure to hydrogen sulfide can cause nausea and other health issues.
