How to Protect Your Home in Extreme Cold

It’s frosty outside. Most of the country is layering up for some icy temps. And while the Experts are always eager to help, have a few HVAC and plumbing tips to help you avoid those winter weather emergencies.

    • Disconnect exterior water fixtures.
    • Make sure you insulate exposed pipes and outdoor fixtures.
    • A slow drop in indoor bathrooms and sinks by exterior walls can keep pipes from freezing.
    • Open up kitchen and bathroom cabinets underneath sinks to keep warm air moving around pipes.
    • Set an indoor temperature of at least 68 degrees (and warmer if possible).
    • Get those indoor heaters ready by checking them for proper operation.
    • If you’ve got vents closed in unused rooms, make sure you open them up.
    • Last but not least, give each of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors a quick inspection.
