You’ve already pulled out the sweaters and hot cocoa to prepare yourself for the upcoming winter season, but what about your house? Will your home be ready for the impending onslaught of ice and snow? In today’s edition of Brownsburg Plumbing Tips, we’ll discuss different ways to help get your home winter-ready.
Gutters: Prevent ice dams this winter by clearing out your home’s gutters while autumn is still in the air. If you fail to clean them out before the seasons change, you could end up paying a hefty price for water damage repairs when snowmelt can make its way off the roof and is forced to pool into your home.
Pipes: Proper preventative care will help you avoid the nightmare of a burst pipe in winter. Make sure that all outdoor spigots are shut off before freezing overnight temperatures set in. If you don’t know exactly how to get your pipes winter-ready, contact a reputable crew of plumbing professionals so that you’re certain the pipes in your home are prepped for Jack Frost’s arrival.
Leaks: Investigate your home’s exterior to ensure that air isn’t leaking in or out. Not only will this keep your home nice and toasty when snow starts falling, but it could save you a great deal when it’s time to start paying for expensive heating bills.
This is only a sample of things you can do to prepare your home for winter.
