Cold Weather Preparations
I decided to send you a link with the information I wanted to communicate rather than draft and send each of you a separate message.
With the upcoming cold blast tomorrow (Thursday, Dec 22nd), I wanted to ask you to do a couple of things so as to hopefully not have any freezing issues with plumbing. Please read the following in preparation for weather event:
1) Be safe and prepare for trouble out there. The sharp drop in temperatures combined with high winds tomorrow will make it very dangerous outdoors. Be careful.
2) Plumbing systems are most vulnerable in this kind of situation, especially in these older houses. With that, please plan to run a hot water faucet or two when you go to bed tomorrow and Friday nights. Run faucets at a fast drip or small stream of water so as to keep water moving through pipes.
3) Open cabinet doors under kitchen and bath sinks. This just keeps warm air moving around plumbing.
Hopefully these precautions will keep pipes from freezing. This cold spell will be relatively short, but a fierce one. I expect heat units to be stressed as well, but trust they will do the job until this passes.
Of course, text me if you have issues with these systems.
Inga & I wish each of you a merry Christmas and great 2023.
