We are here for you on those cold nights when your heater breaks, or on the warm sunny days and your cooling goes out, or if you have a dripping sink we are there for you.
When Should You Call for Emergency Repair Services?
That is a great question, and the simple answer is whenever you need us, but there are different problems that can happen that you may not know constitutes an emergency. Below we will list when you should call for an emergency repair.
We would consider a burst pipe an emergency and the first step you will want to take to minimize the damage is shutting off the water. So it's always a good idea to know where your water shut-off valve is. After you have the water shut off, opening a faucet can help eliminate any remaining pressure and water that is in the pipes. This is important to minimize the risk of another burst pipe or a worse leak. And then after that, call a plumber, or better yet, Contact Us to get a quote today.
Heating or Cooling Suddenly Breaks
Heating and cooling are not a luxury, they are critical to your health and safety from the elements. The last thing you need is for one of them to fail when you need it the most. And that is where we come in, call us to get 24/7 repair service for all your HVAC needs.
Gas Line Repair
If you smell a "rotten egg" smell in your home, you may have a gas leak. Natural gas is known for being clean and efficient, but leaking gas can cause lots of problems, including making one very sick, or causing an explosion.
If you do smell a "rotten egg" smell, do not use your cell phone until you are safely away, shut off the gas valve in your home, do not use any electronics, do not try to find the leak. Once you are a safe distance away, then call 911 and then your utility company. Your safety is number one in this situation.
Most Common Emergency Repairs We See
Plumbing and HVAC problems don't ever seem to happen at a good time. They seem to happen when it is least convenient. Like in the middle of the night, just before a special occasion, when your house is supposed to be filled with friends and family. That is where we come in, that is when it is time to call 1-800-Plumber +Air. Our name is our number, and we have licensed and insured technicians ready and available to serve you.
Drains seem to get clogged at the most inconvenient times, and this is one of the most common repairs we see. You want a plumber who can respond fast. Sometimes the consequences can be serious if they are not fixed fast. If a clogged drain is causing you problems do not hesitate to give us a call.
It doesn't matter what kind of drain, they don't just handle clear clean water, be it a sink, to a tub/shower to the toilet they are all drains and handle different kinds of clogs that we can fix. And a slow-moving drain can cause a bit of a mess and a headache. Keep your drains moving smoothly with 1-800-Plumber + Air
Water heater repair and replacement
We do not think of our water heater until you are in the shower shivering. At that point, it is too late for preventive maintenance. Any time you spot trouble with your water heater it is best to call your local trusted plumber right away. This is because the worst-case scenario for a water heater is an explosion and that can be deadly.
If your water heater is no longer heating like it used to, or if there is some discoloration in the water, it is time to get your hot water heater checked, it may be time for a drain and flush, while it is possible to do this yourself, we recommend calling a professional for this, to avoid injuring yourself and making the issue worse. You can always Contact Us to inspect your hot water heater.
No one wants to deal with a toilet overflowing. When you flush, you expect the toilet to do its job. And when it doesn't, it can be a nightmare. This is another form of a clogged drain. It is important to act quickly with this. If your toilet is prone to clogging it is best to keep an eye on it every time you flush. This is another situation that can cause sickness or can be damaging to your health.

This was THE most painless repair experience! We had a leak in a pipe behind our water heater, spewing water out into space, ugh. Joe and his apprentice, Dan, were here in about an hour or so. They were both so very friendly from the moment they showed up at the front door! After they determined the problem, we discussed the needed repair, and then they began to replace the pipe(s) behind the water heater. This was pretty much an all-day job and I can honestly say it was no problem having them in my home. They were not only professional and courteous employees; they were two very kind individuals, who were also comfortable and friendly around my crazy dogs! I have had nothing but the finest experiences with this company and cannot recommend them highly enough! They are the best!
Chad was very informative and professional. He and his co-worker are a very rare breed in that they fully prepared to go to work and get the job done right then. I would definitely recommend and use again Chad an 1-800-plumber.
He is very professional and very respectful.
Thanks for getting here so quickly and finding the issue. Also thanks for suggesting the locking caps - Hopefully this will prevent theft of the freon.
Kyle Urban is great! He does beautiful work and is a great guy! We will request him personally from now on.
This is a very professional and helpful team! Would definitely recommend to all my friends and family in the Houston area!
He was everything you want in a employee!!! He was professional, kind, informative, patient, and very clean.
Chad C. with 1-800-plumber really cared. He was extremely thorough and made sure the job was done correctly. Would definitely recommend him!
Plugged drain outside of house. Came out the next day, showed us the video of the tree branches in our line, gave me a quote over the phone and I had them start work. Finished in a few hours and left with our system drain restored.
The tech was so nice, knowledgeable and efficient.
