As you are getting your home prepared for winter, don’t forget about your plumbing that may be exposed to low temperatures. A burst pipe can cause costly damage, especially if they occur overnight or while you are away from home.
Residents should always have clear access to a functioning water shut-off valve inside their home so they can safely turn off their water in an emergency.
- Turn off all outside taps and drain them in the fall
- Insulate pipes that are located in crawl spaces or unevenly heated areas
- Ensure the areas with plumbing are sufficiently heated to prevent freezing
- Contact a plumber for specific concerns about your house
