Protecting Your Pipes from the Cold Weather

- 3:33 pm - January 5th, 2021

As New Jersey’s reliable full-service home comfort provider, we’ve seen everything. That means we know what could be in store for our customers when the temperatures keep dropping during the winter. Trust us when we say that if you don’t tend to your plumbing system’s pipes, you could be facing costly water damage and repairs as a result of frozen pipes!

Help yourself prevent a frozen pipe nightmare with a few simple tasks:

  • Repair broken and cracked windows, doors and walls to keep air contained
  • Install storm windows on basement windows for better protection
  • Make sure exterior doors and windows close tightly
  • Upgrade or replace old insulation in exterior walls
  • Seal up crawl spaces to eliminate drafts
  • Turn off the water to outdoor faucets, and remove hoses – draining the pipes first
  • Insulate accessible pipes and the water meter – especially if they’re in an uninsulated garage or basement

Most importantly, keep your heating system in proper working order! If your home stays warm enough, it can help with keeping pipes from freezing – and Tomasso Bros. Energy can help with that, too! Contact us online or call today to learn more about our comprehensive home heating services.
