Plumbing Tips to Get You by this Season of Cold
The cold air blowing makes our days and nights colder than ever. There is no doubt that it definitely is wintertime. It is time to wear layered clothes and keep the house as warm as it can be to keep the utility bills from drastically increasing this season.
Compiled below are some of the best tips to keep the house warm this winter season.
- When the temperature continuously falls below freezing, open your cabinets, whether in the kitchen or anywhere in the house, to let warm air inside and reach the pipes.
- Whenever possible, allow a very small trickle of water to run through the pipes overnight. This will help keep them from freezing. It may cause a slight water bill increase but it still is cheaper than repairing broken pipes.
- Be sure that every member of the household knows the location of the water’s main shutoff valve. If not, try to locate it and let everyone know. Do not forget to mark it for easier identification during emergencies.
Stay safe and warm in the winter. Follow the tips aforementioned and read more to be knowledgeable.
