The seasons are changing quick and soon winter will be here, but are your pipes ready? Here are a few reminders and tips on how to get ready for winter.
- Flush out Exterior Plumbing. Exterior plumbing includes outdoor faucets, hoses, and lawn irrigation systems. We suggest draining and disconnecting each of these fixtures to avoid frozen and bursting pipes.
- Insulate Pipes. Insulating exposed basement or crawlspace pipes is an affordable way to prevent pipes form freezing. Pipe insulation also works to keep hot water therefore reducing energy bills.
- Get a thorough home inspection done by a pro. It’s always best to be prepared. We recommend being proactive and taking precautions to protect your home and your family. Have a fully licensed inspector check your entire home to make sure it’s in safe condition and prepared for the rain and cold weather.
