Winter Pipe Bursts Can Be Prevented
When the weather starts to get colder during the winter months it is a good idea to start taking initiative and make some changes or check some things to make sure your home is safe from unwanted water damage. Firstly, you're going to want to check your home's water pipes to see whether or not you need to make some changes. If your pipes have already been insulated then you're already a step ahead of the curve and your home is safer for it. Secondly, if you don't have insulation on your piping you need to look into getting it done. This will help keep your pipes warm enough so that they don't break from extreme cold. Thirdly, you can take extra precaution by running your tap at a trickle, this will keep water flowing and help mitigate ice forming in or around your pipes! Use these few tips to help ensure that your home is protected from winter time water damage.
