Winterize Your Home!

As cold weather approaches, it is important to protect your home through the cold months. Winterizing is can be done relatively inexpensively, but will make a big difference in how comfortable your home is, and could end up saving you money on energy bills, too.

A thorough and complete draining of all plumbing and heating systems is done. Then, non-toxic anti-freeze is added to all of the traps and fixtures, the toilets are taped, and waterproof through wind, snow, rain, and freezing temperatures.

Pipes will freeze and possibly burst.

If the temperature inside a house gets below 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0° Celsius) it's likely that the water supply pipes and the drain traps will freeze.

When water freezes it expands 9 percent, and if there is no room for expansion it's possible that the pipe will burst. When the ice thaws the pipe will leak, and in the supply system this leak could occur anywhere. Fixing a burst pipe can be expensive, but the damage from uncontrolled water leakage can easily reach into the thousands of dollars. Believe me, you do not want to experience the hassle and expense of having a pipe burst and spraying water all over your basement, or anywhere in your home.

What you shuold know.

It’s essential that your furnace remain in good working order with clean ductwork that’s in good repair, and a MCM technician can properly inspect and correct your system.

One sure way to have inflated heating bills is to continually lose heat to the cold outdoors. You can easily reduce this loss of heat by carefully air sealing your home.
