WINTER WEATHER TIPS FOR YOUR PLUMBING
1/2/2018


How to Prevent Frozen Pipes
 
• Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.
• Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing.  Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household         chemicals up out of the reach of children.
• When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe - even at a trickle -       helps prevent pipes from freezing.
• Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and at  night. By temporarily suspending the use of lower nighttime temperatures, you     may incur a higher heating bill, but you can prevent a much more costly repair job if pipes freeze and burst.
• If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.
