Like any populous metro area, the Atlanta area sees a wide range of home repairs, but appliance repairs often top the list. Candu Pros are often called out to repair refrigerators that won’t cool properly, which is usually the result of dirty coils or a bad evaporator fan.
Ice maker issues are also common in refrigerators that have them built in. If your ice maker stops making ice, it may be because the inlet hose that feeds water into the unit has become clogged.
You might also need a new ice maker, simply due to wear and tear on your unit -- most models twist or heat the internal ice molds to free the ice cubes, which can cause them to break down over time. In many newer refrigerators, it’s easier to replace the whole ice maker than to fix it.
Atlanta homeowners also frequently call on plumbers in the Candu Pro Network for help with repairs like leaky faucets and showerheads or clogged toilets. Blocked drains are the most common complaint. Shower and sink drains are most often clogged by human hair, or, in the kitchen, by food waste or congealed grease. Garbage disposal repairs in Atlanta frequently involve removing stubborn clogs from impeller blades.
HVAC repairs are also common in Atlanta -- no one wants to suffer through a hot, humid Georgia summer without central air. The most common reasons for HVAC breakdowns include dirty HVAC filters, faulty fan motors, and worn-out capacitors. It’s not uncommon for older models to need a refrigerant recharge, but with the high cost of R22 refrigerant, it may be more cost effective to replace your air conditioner.
