- Keep pipes warm to prevent from freezing and bursting which can cause very expensive damage to your home. Inspect and look for leaks especially in areas that are cold without any heat.
- Open interior doors and cabinet doors where pipes exist to warm up these areas with your homes’ internal heat.
