Its been cold lately. Cold as its been at any time so far this winter. I came downstairs to turn on the kitchen sink and while cold water came out, when I turned on just hot water, no water came out. I went to the other faucets in the house, including a nearby bathroom, they all give hot water.
I immediately called our home warranty people, fearing frozen pipes. I'm hopeful that's not the reason, so I wanted to know if I could troubleshoot the issues until I can get a plumber to come out.
- What would the signs of frozen pipes be? Is there anyway I could tell they are frozen while they are frozen?
- What other things could cause a single faucet to not give hot water. How could I look for those reasons?
