Frequently Asked Questions
Air Conditioning Repair
Q. How do I stop water leaking from an air conditioner?
A. Whenever you find water leaking, first you need to switch off an AC and locate the reason for the leakage. Water leaking can be due to dirty coils, damaged insulation, clogged or disconnection of the drain line.
If you can not figure out the real cause of the problem, immediately call the experienced AC repair technician to fix it.
Q. My air conditioner is over 12 years old and working properly, is it worth getting repaired?
A. When your air conditioner has reached double-digit, repair is not a good option. Due to low efficiency, more energy will be consumed and your utility bills will be high. It would probably be cheaper to replace it with the new cost-effective air conditioner.
Q. Why is my AC filter wet?
A. Having wet AC filters indicates a blockage in the condensate drain or pan. During air filtration, there are lots of pollutants and debris which may accumulate in the drainpipe, preventing moisture that is condensed into liquid in evaporator coils from draining away.
Hence, there is no way to go, so the condensate backs up until the pan overflows, resulting in wet AC filters.
Water Leak Detection
Q. What are the causes of water leakage?
A. Clogged drains, damaged flapper or flush valve seals in toilets, corrosion in pipes, and high water pressure are the reasons for water leakage.
If you’re experiencing it, rely on skilled and trained water leakage repair technicians at EZ for fast and efficient services.
Q. Water is leaking from my shower pipe. What should I do?

Slab Leak Detection
Q. I haven’t noticed a change in the water bill. How else might I detect that I have a slab leak?
A. If there is no change in your water bill, you need to look for the sound of running water. Especially in the nighttime, when all water sources are shut down, and still, you hear the sound, it could be an indication of a slab leak. There could be a busted pipe beneath the concrete slab. Another sign is a warm spot on the floor. When there are copper pipes, the leakages allow hot water to accumulate in the specific area. So, you notice hot spots on some areas of the floor.
Q. When is the perfect time to request slab leak detection?
A. The perfect time to request slab leak detection is immediately after you see any warning sign of slab leak. The more you are proactive, the lesser will be the damage, complication, and repair cost.
Water Damage Repair
Q. In how much time will I get indications of water damage?
A. You can see signs of water damage immediately or in a few hours. But in some situations, it takes days or months to become visible. Whenever you see any warning signs, you need to act quickly to avoid yourself, your loved ones, and your home at risk.
Precautions are always better than cure, so it’s wise to have regular plumbing inspections from our experienced plumber to detect leaks and fix them on site.
Q. The local plumber said that my crawl space is flooded. What is a crawl space and how do I fix it?
A. The crawl space is between the ground and your house, where plumbers and technicians access the piping and wiring system. During weather events or leakage, the excess water draws down the crawl space, and there are high chances of mold and mildew growth as this space is not exposed to sunlight.
So, you need to take quick action and call a water damage expert who will fix the leakage as well as repair the damage. EZ will offer a one-stop solution for water damage restoration and repair in your crawl space.
