Are you ready for the cold? 

                          

Well maybe it’s not time to go ice fishing, but if you haven’t given thought to winterizing your vacation home, you may want to consider doing that or turning up the heat and covering up your faucets. Another way to minimize your exposure to frozen water pipes and eventual damage is to turn the water off at the road, drain your pipes and turn off or lower the temperature on your hot water tank. Because of a personal issue with broken water pipes, my wife and I are big fans of always turning off your water in your home or vacation home when you’re gone for more then a day.

                          

Don't wait on doing something. You'll be glad you did. With the Holidays just around the corner, friends and relatives will leaving home to spend time with their loved ones. Besides getting all kinds of gifts, you don't want them or yourself coming home to the biggest surprise of all...frozen pipes or water damage.
