Insulate Pipes

Check that all water pipes are properly insulated. Pipes running through exterior walls and uninsulated attics and crawlspaces may be at risk of freezing in winter months. Foam pipe sleeves come pre-slit and can easily be wrapped around unprotected pipes and sealed with tape.

In addition, wrapping hot water pipes will save energy which in turn saves you money.

Flush Water Heater

Drain and flush the water heater once a year. This will remove sediment that can build up and reduce the efficiency of the heater or clog the drain valve. Verify the pressure relief valve is working.

You can do this yourself or hire someone.
