It's Getting Cold, Are Your Pipes Protected?
It's that wonderful time of year again, fall. Halloween is over and people are getting into the Thanksgiving midset. Our office has had many conversations about turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and all the other yummy foods we gorge ourselves on.
With all of the festivities, have you thought about your pipes? Temperatures have already dipped below freezing several nights. Are your pipes protected or are you at risk for them freezing? Those frozen pipes can cause erious water damages.
Here are a few tips to prevent frozen pipes:
1. Stay weather and temperature aware.
2. If the temperature will be below freezing, leave water dripping in all faucets on exterior walls.
3. Ensure your water heater does not freeze with the aid of a special blanket used to insulate water heaters.
If you experience a water damage, call our office at 256-236-8889.
