Tips for winterizing your home

Winter and cold weather are approaching. Don’t let old man winter get you down, or cause an untimely insurance claim! Here are a couple of “winterizing” tips. Once freezing temperatures hit, be sure your outside hoses are disconnected from the house to prevent freezing of pipes. Be sure to close all the vents around the foundation (hint: put it on your calendar to open these same vents in the spring to provide ventilation under the house). You might also wanna pick up some foam hose spigot insulators that can help in preventing pipes from freezing. If you go on vacation, make sure you leave the heat up in the house too! (Experts recommend 52 degrees). The average claim resulting from freezing pipes is generally about $25,000. Don’t let this happen to you!
