Don’t Let The Cold Weather Cause A Plumbing Disaster
Last year we saw an abundance of frozen pipes, and while we’re here to fix any plumbing issue we wanted to provide you with some tips for cold weather preparations:
-Make sure you insulate your pipes located in areas such as your garage, crawl space, attic, and any other areas that aren’t heated.
-Seal up any air leaks that are near outdoor pipes. If these air leaks aren’t sealed correctly, the cold air could get inside and freeze your pipes.
-Put your garden hoses away and shut off your outdoor water supply.
-If you’re planning to head out of town, do not set your thermostat below 55 degrees.
-Lastly and most importantly, make sure everyone in your home knows where the main shutoff valve is.
