Grinding, Squealing and Screeching: Interpreting the Noises Your HVAC Makes

If something is failing or going amiss with your HVAC unit, chances are, your HVAC unit is letting you know something is not quite right. However, most of the cues come in the form of sounds that many of us may overlook. If you hear your HVAC unit grinding, squealing, screeching or squeaking, it is letting you know it needs help. I was unaware of these cues and overlooked them. It ended up costing me a lot of money in repairs. I want to make sure that does not happen to other people, so I made this website. I hope you learn how to interpret the noises your HVAC unit is making so you can get it the repairs it needs before you incur a costly repair, or worse, permanently ruin your unit for good.

3 Tips For Dealing With A Faulty Toilet On A Holiday

by Billie Carlson

You might have been looking forward to spending a holiday with your family members and friends. Dealing with an issue with one of your toilets can really put a damper on the day, but knowing how to handle things can help you minimize the impact.

1. Try to Fix it Yourself

First of all, depending on what is going on with your toilet, you might be able to fix the problem yourself. If there is a simple clog, for example, excusing yourself to the restroom and using a plunger might help you save the day without anyone even really knowing about the problem existing. If the problem seems too serious or if you don't seem to be making much headway with the issue, though, you may want to stop before you make the problem worse.

2. Ask Guests to Use Another Bathroom

If you aren't able to get your toilet back up and running properly, then you will probably want to direct all of your guests to the other bathrooms in your home. Continuing to use a toilet that is clogged will only make the problem worse. There is the possibility that the toilet could overflow if someone attempts to flush it, which could become a very messy and embarrassing problem for everyone who is involved. Consider locking the door — after making sure that you have the key first, of course — or putting up a sign that lets guests know where the other bathrooms in the home are located.

3. Call an Emergency Plumbing Service

When there is a faulty toilet in the home, it is a good idea to call a plumbing service to come and help you out. A good plumber should be able to get your toilet back up and running in no time, and he or she can prevent the problem from getting worse. You could be worried that you will not be able to find a plumber on a holiday, but the good news is that many of these professionals offer emergency services on any day of the year. The sooner that you call a plumber, the sooner that you can get the problem fixed so that you and your loved ones can go back to enjoying your holiday.

Don't let a faulty toilet ruin the holiday fun for you and your family. Instead, follow the tips above, and you should be able to improve the situation.
