More people than ever have been moving to new areas throughout the country during the past year, and some might be experiencing winter weather for the first time. It can be difficult to learn all that you need to know when it comes time to prepare for winter, and sometimes, what you don’t know could hurt you.
For example, not being aware of the danger of frozen pipes could lead to catastrophic leaks. It is important to know where there might be vulnerable pipes in your home because on some cold nights it might be necessary to leave a trickle of water running to keep them from freezing. If you have pipes in a wall that is facing the outside, you might also need to open up a cabinet underneath the sink to allow for warmer air to flow in there.
Insulating your pipes is a good idea in colder climates, but you should also have sufficient insulation in the rest of your home. Thermal imaging can truly help in finding issues with insulation, pinpointing areas that need attention.
