Winter Low Temperature Maintenace Tips

winter1

When temperatures get below 15 degrees it dramatically increases the possibility of frozen pipes and breakage. When temperatures drop this low, we ask that you do the following preventative measures:

* Please keep your heat set to at least 66 degrees or higher even when you are not home.

* At least one inside faucet, preferably more, should continually drip warm water so that both hot & cold water lines are kept flowing to prevent freezing.

* Pipes for the kitchens and first floor bathrooms tend to be more vulnerable to freezing pipes. Cabinet doors should be left open to allow heat from your unit to enter.

* All faucets should be checked in the morning and evening to insure there is proper flow of water.
