Keeping your pipes from freezing in the winter is easy and can save you from having a soggy season. If the temperatures are expected to fall below freezing let your faucets drip and open the cabinets beneath kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Pipes under sinks may not be insulated. Opening the cabinets circulates warm air from your home and helps prevent pipe bursts. Be sure to relocate any hazardous cleaning materials out of reach from small children.
Turn off and drain your outside hose faucets. Leaving a hose connected to a spigot can result in water freezing the pipes inside your walls. When the exterior hose faucets are turned on, they will attempt to push water through and past any frozen sections, leading to an inevitable breaking of the pipes or hose and flooding inside your walls.
If you are traveling for the holidays remember to keep the heat on. The weather may be nice when you leave, but can quickly change while you are gone. Please leave your thermostat set between 60 and 65 degrees to prevent pipes from freezing while you are away.
Also, we encourage you to consider registering your home for House Watch with your Community Office if you are going out of town. When you register your home, the Community team will make a routine check of the property and can take appropriate actions as needed.
The National Fire Protection Association and the U.S. Fire Administration estimate holiday decorations cause almost 400 home fires each year, resulting in many losses of life as well as millions in property damage. Following a few simple tips will ensure a happy and fire-safe holiday season.
- Be careful with holiday decorations. Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.
- Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn.
- Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.
- Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect.
- Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged.
- Keep decorations away from windows and doors.
- Test your smoke alarms and tell guests about your home fire escape plan.
- If you do no cook often, check your oven and stove before cooking a large holiday meal.
- Keep children and pets away from lit candles.
- Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet.
- Stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop.
- Ask smokers to smoke outside. Remind smokers to keep their smoking materials with them so young children do not touch them.
- Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Wet cigarette butts with water before discarding.
- And remember to blow out lit candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Turn off all light strings and decorations before leaving home or going to bed.
As we are all aware, fires can start any time of year. There is an increased risk during the holiday season. Please be safe and have a wonderful holiday season.
Turn off holiday decorations when no one is home and at night before you go to bed. Timers are a great way to ensure the lights are only on at certain times.
