How to Protect Your Home in Extreme Cold

It’s frosty out there. Much of the country is layering up for some icy weather. And while the Experts are always ready to help, have a few HVAC and plumbing pearls of wisdom to help you avoid those winter weather emergencies. 

  • Disconnect exterior water connections. 
  • Insulate all exposed pipes and outdoor fixtures. 
  • A slow drop in indoor sinks and bathrooms by outer walls can keep pipes from freezing. 
  • Open up cabinets underneath sinks to keep warm air moving around pipes. 
  • Keep an indoor temperature of at least 68 degrees (and warmer if possible). 
  • Get those indoor heaters ready by testing them for proper operation. 
  • If you’ve got vents closed in unused rooms, make sure you open them up. 
  • If your furnace is not functioning, contact the Experts for heating repairs or consider a new furnace install
  • Last but not least, give your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors a quick once-over. 

Follow these quick tips to keep your HVAC and plumbing warm and working. Then heat yourself some hot cocoa. And, as always, Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here for you. If you’ve got questions, concerns or problems, don’t hesitate to call
