DON’T BE A VICTIM TO FROZEN PIPES

DON’T BE A VICTIM TO FROZEN PIPES

 

During the winter, your home’s water pipes are susceptible to leaking, freezing, or even bursting! Consider these expert tips to keep your home safe this season:

  • If you’ll be away from home for a long period of time, shut off the water supply valves to your washing machine.
  • If a faucet or pipe in your home freezes, thaw it using a hair dryer before it bursts and turns into a bigger problem!
  • Check pipes around your water meter, in unheated areas, near exterior walls and in crawl spaces.
  • Install low temperature sensors and a leak detection and shutoff system.
