Looks Like Colorado Found the Winter

Happy Monday Colorado, and it looks like we finally found the winter!

Colorado Winter

So we know what winter means: Slick roads, early darkness, and temperatures dropping well below zero, especially at night. The most important thing to remember when the weather starts changing like this is to drive safe, keep your headlights or running lights on, even during the day, and be patient. Allow yourself extra time to get to and from work. Be forgiving to other people on the road and don’t let all the darkness get you down.

Also, from the plumbing angle, make sure to take a few steps to keep your home protected from potential freeze breaks and other weather-related issues. Try the following steps:

  • Make sure to keep your heat on and set to no less than 64° F
  • Keep the doors, closets, and cabinets open to ensure that warm air circulates
  • Keep you garage door shut
  • Don’t be fooled by random warm days; if you get a warm day and decide to do some gardening, make sure you disconnect your hose and fully shut the valve off
  • If you’re leaving for more than 24 hours, shut your main water off and open a kitchen faucet to allow warm air in

These are just a few easy steps you can take to protect your home from the dangers of freeze breaks. If you do run into any frozen pipes, check out our Do-It-Yourself pipe thawing section. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call, email, or leave a comment below. We’re here to help.
