The cold weather may be coming later than usual, but it didn’t forget about us.  We shouldn’t forget about preparing for it either.  Keep safe with the following tips during a winter storm:
  • Wrap water pipes in your basement with insulation sleeves to slow heat transfer
  • Maintain your thermostat above 55 degrees as temp inside walls is colder than living spaces
  • During cold spells, keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air to reach around pipes
  • Keep water lines opened slightly to drip slowly into a sink during extreme cold
Use generators outside – never inside the home basement, or garage
