Freezing weather tips

Here are some tips to protect your home from freezing weather:

  • Turn off outside faucets and remove any garden hoses. Wrap the faucet with a towel or styrofoam insulator. Turn off and drain any automatic sprinkler systems.
  • A trickle of hot and cold water might be all it takes to keep your pipes from freezing. Let warm water drip overnight, preferably from a faucet on the outside wall.
  • Open cabinet doors to allow for warmer air to circulate under sinks and appliances near exterior walls.
  • Check tank and tankless water heaters for manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Know where your main shut off valve is!
