Protect Your Home From Record Low Temps

how-protect-home-extreme-cold-weather-2As we see record low temperatures in metro Atlanta, here are a few tips to protect your home from the artic air.

*Keep the thermostat set to a minimum of 65 degrees.

*Keep the temperature the same during the day and night.  This is not the time to save a few dollars by lowering the temperature when you’re not home or when you’re sleeping.

*Find the main water shutoff in your home, and be sure you know how to use it… just in case.

*Turn on your faucets enough to let them drip.

*Open the cabinet doors under the kitchen and bathroom sinks to let the warm air flow under the sinks and around pipes.

*Make sure all hoses are disconnected from outside spigots.

*Lastly, we hope you don’t need it, but have a plumber’s name and phone number handy, just in case.
