Keep the Chill Out! Prepare Your Pipes for Winter

Winterize BibEach winter, homes are damaged due to water pipes that freeze and burst. By taking a few simple precautions, you can help save yourself from the mess, money and headaches of burst frozen pipes

Before the Cold Hits

Insulate pipes in your home’s crawl spaces, basement and attic. Exposed pipes are more susceptible to freezing. The more insulation you use, the better the protection.

Heat tape can be used to wrap pipes. Closely follow the manufacturer’s installation and operation instructions.

Seal leaks and close foundation vents to minimize cold air entering your house and freezing pipes. Open vents again in the spring to prevent dry rot.

Drain and disconnect garden hoses and insulate hose bibs.

Know where your water shut-off valve is located.
