As the weather starts to get cold this winter remember to take a few precautionary steps to protect your home against freezing weather.
1. Maintain sufficient heat in your home while you are away to avoid frozen water pipes.
2. Fit exposed pipes with insulation sleeves to provide more insulation.
3. Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets connected to pites that run through an unheated or unprotected space.
4. If your house will be unattended for a long period consider draining the water system.
