How to Protect Your Home in Extreme Cold

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

  • Disconnect those exterior water fixtures. 
  • Make sure you insulate exposed pipes and outdoor fixtures. 
  • A slow drop in indoor sinks and bathrooms by exterior walls can keep pipes from freezing. 
  • Open up cabinets underneath sinks to keep warm air circulating around pipes. 
  • Keep 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’ve got vents shut in unused rooms, open them now. 
  • If your furnace is not operational, contact the Experts for heating repairs or consider a new furnace install
  • Last but not least, give each of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors a quick check.
