Tomorrow, September 22, autumn will officially begin. Now the leaves will begin to change, pumpkin patches will sprout up, and the air will become cool and crisp. Soon, though, the weather will grow colder, and you want to make sure your home’s plumbing system is ready for whatever elements autumn and winter will throw at it.
First, check the outdoor faucets and garden hoses and make sure to disconnect them so they won’t freeze when the weather gets colder. Also, if you’ll be out of town for a while when the air starts cooling, leave your thermostat at a medium temperature to prevent frozen pipes.
If you have any questions about how to prepare your home’s plumbing system for autumn and winter, don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule an appointment. Hot chocolate and pumpkin carving, here we come!
