IMPORTANT STEPS TO AVOID FROZEN PIPES
Insulate your pipes – Insulation is an effective way of protecting your plumbing pipes from frigid winter temperatures. Plumbing pipes located in basements, closets and crawl spaces are especially in need of proper insulation to avoid over exposure to the cold and potentially causing costly plumbing problems. If you are aware of pipes in your home that are in need of proper insulation, then don’t delay. Reach out to the pros here at Steve Mull Plumbing today and let us take care of the problem for you.
Keep temperatures in your home comfortable at all times – Many homeowners think it best to turn off their heating systems when they are away from home for extended periods of time or even when on vacation. This could not be farther from the truth. When you shut down your heating system you increase the risk of frozen pipes.When pipes are allowed to freeze, more times than not they will burst causing excessive costs and damage. When you are away from home for extended periods of time or even on vacation, the team here at Steve Mull Plumbing highly recommends you keep your thermostat set at least at 55 degrees during your absence.
Be sure to drain the water from outdoor hoses and store them away – At the end of the warm weather season, it is important to drain the water from your hoses and store them away for the winter months. If you do not drain the water from the hose line and store the hoses, the existing water can freeze and get into the spigot which will eventually cause leaks in the walls of your home. Draining the water from the hoses and properly storing them in advance of the winter months will help to avoid these problems.
