Winter Is Coming….
Here are 6 Tips to help you protect your home from extreme cold weather conditions.
1. Shut Off the Water to Outside Spigots - To keep outdoor plumbing fixtures from freezing, disconnect and store any garden hoses. Then, shut off the water to your outdoor faucets, drain the lines, and insulate the hose bibs.
2. Check th
e Exterior Walls of Your Home for Holes - Even small holes where cable wires or phone lines enter your home can be an entry point for freezing air. Purchase a tube of foam insulation and close them up. Then, use weather stripping to remedy any cracks around your doors.
3. Set Your Faucets to Drip - If any of your indoor faucets are located on exterior walls that aren't adequately insulated, set your faucets to a slow drip whenever temperatures dip below freezing. For maximum effectiveness, make sure both the hot and cold lines are opened slightly (since both are at risk of freezing). Also, consider leaving cabinet doors open, so your pipes will be warmed whenever your home's heating system kicks on.
4. Clear a Path to Your Main Water Shut Off - If a bunch of junk is blocking easy access to your main water shut valve off. Your shut off valve may be located outside in front of the house or at the main meter. Then, make sure your shut off valve is in good working order. Cranking it all the way to the right should shut off all water to the house. If it's rusted open or only closes partially, replace the valve immediately. Go a step further, and make sure everyone in your house knows where the shut off valve is located and how to use it to turn off the water.
5. Learn How to Shut Off Your Water at the Meter - Invest in a meter key (or keep a crescent wrench handy), so you'll be able to shut off water at the meter, should your shut off valve ever fail you. Then, practice turning the water on and off, so you'll know how it's done.
6. Keep Spare Batteries for Your Thermostat - Make sure you'll be able to keep your thermostat running continuously by keeping spare batteries on hand. Sometimes it's the small details that save the day.
