Protect Your Home

Winter is approaching in the Midwest. With cold weather comes freezing pipes. To protect your home or business from pipes freezing this winter take these precautionary steps.

  • Insulate Your Pipes. The best way to keep your pipes from freezing is to purchase pipe insulation. Buying these now will save you more money, compared to the price it takes to fix a busted water pipe.
  • Keep Garage Doors Closed. This is important if your water supply lines go through your garage.
  • Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to keep the warm air circulating around the plumbing.
  • Let the faucets drip. By creating any flow of water through the pipes it creates a small amount of heat that will make the pipes harder to freeze.
  • Keep your thermostat at the same temperature during the day and night. The steady temperature will help keep your pipes free of ice.
  • If you plan on leaving your home during the winter, make sure to leave your heat on while you are away.
