Brrr … baby it’s cold outside!

Baby, let’s keep the cold outside.

During the current winter conditions, we recommend you do
the following to protect your home and avoid freezing pipes:

  • Close foundation vents around the base of your home when the temperature is below 20 ºF

  • If you have exposed plumbing make sure to wrap the exposed pipes with insulation 
  • Keep your garage doors closed, and the cold outside, especially if your water heater is located in the garage 
  • Make sure you sufficiently heat your home to prevent freezing of pipes – no lower than 55 ºF, even while on vacation 
  • Disconnect hoses from outside your home if you haven’t done so already
