Prevent pipes from freezing
Night time temps are beginning to drop. Soon it will be time to wake up a little earlier to get the frost off our windshields. While preventing winter from coming is not likely to happen, we can take precautions to prevent worse things from happening from the cold, like frozen pipes for example.
Frozen pipes bursting is not only a devastating damage that can happen to your home but can also be costly. there are some things you can do tho to help prevent this.
1) turn the heat on. If no one is going to be in the home you might want to turn the heat down to save on cost while away, but its probably a better idea to leave the heat on.
2) Allow faucets to drip. allowing the faucets to drip helps open up the pipe to help keep the risk of pressure build up and bursting down.
3) Keep cabinet/vanity/closet doors open if they contain pipes to allow heat to get in.
4) Seal up cracks and holes where pipes run into the wall and floors.
5) Add insulation to areas that tend to be colder such as attics or basements.
