Keep your cool (or warm) with the King Royal Treatment Plan

Preventive maintenance is vital for HVAC systems. You don’t want them to fail when the winter is coldest, or the summer is hottest. You don’t want them to be energy-inefficient. Routine inspection and maintenance help prevent system failure and saves money.

Let the King Royal Treatment Plan help keep your system running efficiently. King Heating, Cooling & Plumbing will come out twice yearly to perform preventive maintenance. We’ll call you to schedule the visit and make sure your system is ready for the season.

Royal Treatment Plan subscribers receive priority treatment

On bitterly cold winter days, it’s common to have a rash of HVAC failures throughout your community. Preventive maintenance minimizes the chance of a failure, but it doesn’t guarantee it. There is nothing worse than waiting for service and hoping your pipes don’t freeze.

As a member of the Royal Treatment Plan, you have made an extra effort to ensure that your HVAC system remains up and running. You deserve a reward. Any service request you make will take priority over non-subscribers.

Subscribers receive discounts on parts and labor

The cost of parts and labor is always a concern with heating and cooling systems. As an incentive to becoming a subscriber, you can expect to pay for parts and labor at discounted rates. This plan is also available for older equipment that may be more susceptible to problems.

Sewer blockages are as bad as they sound

Your sewer line is the unsung hero of your home. It carries water and waste away from your home to the municipal sewer—a function you probably don’t think too much about on a day-to-day basis. That is, until something goes wrong. A sewer blockage is a serious problem where water and waste can no longer leave your home. And what goes down must come up. The result can be incredibly destructive—and pretty gross, as well.

Call King for help with sewer blockages in your Chicago home.

Sewer blockages are a major issue that can cause major headaches. Call the experienced plumbing pros at King for a free plumbing inspection if you suspect you’re having sewer line issues.

In this article, we’ll review what sewer blockages are, how they often form, and the signs of one that you should be on the lookout for. If you suspect that you have a sewer blockage, or you think something might be wrong with your home’s plumbing, call King for a free plumbing inspection here in Chicagoland.

What are sewer blockages?

All the drains in your home lead to one place: your sewer line. This is a wider line that runs from your property to the sewer—typically located at the street. A sewer blockage is anything that acts to obstruct that line, preventing water and waste from draining to the sewer. Most commonly, such obstructions are caused by:

  • Grease, trash, and waste: Whenever you pour grease down the drain, there’s a chance that some of it will start to collect inside of the sewer line. Over time, this can cause a clot to start to form inside of the line until, one day, this completely blocks the flow of water. This problem is only made worse when non-disposable trash enters the sewer line.
  • Tree roots: When a sewer line springs a small leak, most homeowners don’t notice. Surrounding trees do, however. Their thirsty roots reach out and envelope the line, eventually breaking into it and blocking the line altogether. For obvious reasons, homes with trees over or near the line are in the most danger of this occurring.

Signs of a sewer blockage

One of the first things you’ll notice—and often the thing that prompts homeowners to call us—is that your sink isn’t draining. In fact, nothing is draining. A sewer line blockage is a simultaneously clog of all your drains. If this is happening to you, immediately turn off the water and call us in for a free plumbing inspection and our 24/7 plumbing repair service.

You may notice that water is starting to come up. This will first happen in the lowest drains in your showers and bathtubs, but could eventually impact the rest of your home. Again, by turning off the water, you should be able to put a stop to this before too much damage is done.

Dealing with sewer blockages

A sewer obstruction is a major issue that will involve us needing to dig up the sewer line, clear the blockage, and then replace that part of the line without compromising the rest of it. In other words, this is a job best left to professional plumbers.

If you suspect that you have a sewer line blockage or sewer line issues of any kind, call King Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. We offer free plumbing inspections here in Chicagoland, and we’re your source for experienced plumbers and 24/7 plumbing repair services.
