Winterize Your Home

Winterize Your Home

foam pipe insulation winterize your homeIt’s hard to imagine with 85 degree days in the forecast, but winter is fast approaching.  Christmas is less than 60 days away (Just had to throw that in).  Colder weather means proper readiness around the house and barn will be essential to preventing those water mishaps.  Freezing temperatures and water in unprotected pipes is never a good mix.  Therefore Hallsville Hardware always stocks plenty of supplies to winterize your home and prevent those frozen pipes, faucets and thawing leaks.

The best way to get ready is to take a look around your property.  Look for any exposed water lines and pipes.  A simple six foot stick of pipe insulation and a little duct tape goes a long way.  Make sure all pipes are covered and wrap.  Always disconnect water hoses and cover faucets with a simple faucet cover.  Pay close attention to water lines on the north side for they, typically, freeze first.  Place heat lamps in your well houses. Turn the water off to buildings and supply lines not used during the winter weeks and drain. Finally, in the event of electrical outage or heat loss, open the cabinet doors under sinks allow as much heat under the cabinets as possible.

Simple tips that can make all the difference in the world.  With proper pipe insulation and a little preparedness, life is much more pleasant.  Stop by today and let us help you get ready for the cold, it’s on its way.
