How to Protect Your Home in Extreme Cold

It’s frigid outside. Much of the country is layering up for some below freezing temps. And while the Experts are always ready to help, we’ve got a few HVAC and plumbing pearls of wisdom to help you avoid those winter weather emergencies.

    • Disconnect exterior water fixtures.
    • Make sure you insulate exposed pipes and outdoor fixtures.
    • A slow drip in indoor bathrooms and sinks by outer walls can prevent pipes from freezing.
    • Open up those cabinets under 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 have vents shut in unused rooms, now is the time to open them.
    • Last but not least, give those smoke and carbon monoxide detectors a quick test.

Follow these simple tips to keep your HVAC and plumbing warm and working. Then pour yourself some hot cocoa. And, as always, Winnipeg Supply Service Experts is here for you. If you’ve got questions, concerns or problems, don’t hesitate to call.
