Winter time is here again and the cold weather is here to stay. While your friends and family battle low temperatures and inclement weather, you decide to outsmart them. Heading south to warmer weather is the perfect solution. To avoid extra bills, you decide to shut your heat while you’re away. No big deal, right? Wrong. Leaving your home unheated will cause any water in your pipes to freeze. As the water freezes and expands, pressure builds and eventually the pipes in your home will burst. When pipes freeze, it is a costly and time-consuming problem.
To avoid this situation, prepare for winter weather issues in advance. Winterizing your home is an inexpensive and effective way to protect yourself this time of year. Foam or fiberglass insulations are all you need to ensure that your pipes stay intact. Even if you are not flying south for the winter, your heating system can benefit greatly from winterizing your pipes. Areas of the home, which you may not see, may not be receiving heat. Even in a fully heated home, these unseen pipes can burst.
Avoid the costly repairs and pipe replacements by planning ahead. Prepare yourself now for this blustery weather and make sure your plumbing system has been winterized. Don’t wait until it’s too late, call Nebrasky Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling today to have your home winterized!
