Preventing Winter Plumbing Problems
This winter we’ve seen an increased number of calls and requests for service. Many of the calls have been for frozen pipes and other problems caused by the extremely cold temperatures we’ve had.
It’s not too late to winterize your home or business to prevent common problems like frozen pipes and water leaks. Pipes that are located farther away from the heat of your home have a much higher risk of freezing. When water freezes it expands, which can cause your pipes to burst. To prevent this from happening, you can turn faucets on to trickle water, put pipe sleeves on exposed pipes, and add insulation in attics and crawl spaces to maintain a higher temperature.
It’s also important to keep your thermostat at the same temperature day and night, and if you are going on vacation during winter, set your thermostat no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
Your hot water heater can also be affected by the colder temperatures and work overtime in keeping the water at a consistent temperature. To prevent problems with your hot water heater, set the temperature at 120 degrees Fahrenheit and try to reduce hot water usage as much as possible.
Now that you know our success rate and what makes us trustworthy, there’s no reason to dread calling the plumber anymore. If you experience plumbing issues this winter, don’t hesitate to contact us. You can request service online as a preventative measure as well. We hope you don’t have to deal with freezing or bursting pipes, but if you do, you know who to trust.
