Winterize Your Home

(November 2, 2023) – Before freezing weather fully sets in, take some time to winterize your home to take care of your home's infrastructure and prevent frozen pipes. Here are some helpful tips:

  • Insulate pipes that are located in unheated areas of the house
  • Learn where the emergency water shut-off valve is located and how to use it
  • Disconnect and drain hoses from outside faucets and turn them off if they have their own shut-off valve
  • Insulate outdoor spigots with a foam cap or newspaper
  • Turn off and drain automatic sprinkler systems
