Prepare Your Home for Falling Temperatures

Fall is here! It’s true. Ready or not, September 22 marks the official beginning of Autumn. That typically means colder temperatures are around the corner. Is your home’s plumbing and heating system ready? This is a good time to prepare for the upcoming winter season. Check your outdoor faucets and garden hoses. Are they still connected? Be sure to disconnect them to ensure they don’t freeze when temps drop. If you are going to be away from your home for a period of time when temperatures start dropping, be sure to leave your thermostat at a reasonable temperature to prevent frozen pipes. Also, you’ll want to ensure your family’s safety by having your chimney’s flue cleaned before using such heating systems. If a chimney is not cleaned properly prior to usage, it could pose a fire hazard.
