It’s incredibly important to remember to turn off exterior lines of water around the house.
Pipes can freeze if there is a backup of water still left inside, which can cause burst piping because the frozen water expands deep inside. You can easily begin by disconnecting all garden hoses and draining the water out of the exterior faucets before it gets too cold. It will be important to remember this for homes that are over ten years old. Another tip Rhino Shield recommends is leaving one faucet in the house on a slow drip when it gets cold out so that your pipes don’t freeze in the evening time.
Don’t forget to also call a professional to drain your lawn irrigation system, this will help with preventing any pipes from freezing as well. Making sure that you keep pipes will clear of water will prevent a headache in the future.
As it starts to get colder, it’s important to remember to have someone check out your heating system in case any repairs are needed. Find a technician who can inspect your furnace or heating unit to make sure that the entire system is clean and in good working order so that the heating system can achieve its full potential. Rhino Shield also recommends doing this, so that you can get an annual check-up to make sure that there isn’t a carbon monoxide leak. It’s important to call and schedule an appointment sooner than later because it will get increasingly more busy and difficult to book an appointment during the holidays.
