How to Protect Your Home in Extreme Cold

It’s frosty out there. Much of the country is layering up for some icy weather. And while the Experts are always eager to help, we’ve got a few HVAC and plumbing tips to help you avoid those cold weather emergencies.

    • Disconnect exterior water faucets.
    • Insulate all exposed pipes and outdoor fixtures.
    • A slow drip in indoor bathrooms and sinks by outer walls can stop pipes from freezing.
    • Open up those cabinets underneath sinks to keep warm air moving around pipes.
    • Maintain an indoor temperature of at least 68 degrees (and warmer if possible).
    • Get those home heaters ready by testing them for proper operation.
    • If you have vents closed in unused rooms, open them now.
    • Last but not least, give each of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors a quick inspection.

Follow these quick tips to keep your HVAC and plumbing warm and working. Then heat yourself some hot cocoa. And, as always, Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here for you. If you have questions, concerns or problems, don’t hesitate to call.
