Getting Your MetroWest Plumbing Ready for Cold Weather
Soon summer will end, and we’ll be enjoying another MetroWest area winter. While we can hope it will stay warm for a while longer, the cold is coming sooner or later. Now is the time to get your plumbing ready for it.
We all take our plumbing for granted until an emergency happens, but a little planning and forethought can keep things flowing smoothly. Here are some tips from your friends at Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning to make the winter a little less miserable.
Check for Leaks
A visual inspection of your plumbing doesn’t take that long. Check exposed faucets and exposed plumbing
for leaks or drips. Catching a leak early can be the difference between an inexpensive fix and costly renovation and repairs. Plus, even a small leak will cost you big bucks in wasted water over the long run.
Take some time to insulate any exposed plumbing pipes inside or outside your home. It’s quick, easy, and inexpensive. Also, with winter on the way before too long, it’s a good time to give your heating system a test run to make sure it’s running properly before you need it most.
Get a Plumbing Inspection
Consider calling a professional to take a look at the plumbing in your home. They are trained to spot the little problems you might miss that could turn into big problems later. Getting your plumbing checked out costs a lot less than replacing a burst pipe… or repairing your floor after a massive leak.
