Cold Temps means PROTECT PIPES!

Here we go!  The coldest temps of this season yet with windchills coming in the next 3 to 4 days.  Some are saying a 'roller-coaster' weather pattern.  In the meantime, a quick review of PIPE protection.  One pipe burst can flood your property and make this Christmas season a sudden nightmare!  

As a public service, take these 5 precautions so you won't have that miserable event take place:

  • CLOSE all foundation vents so cold air won't get in.
  • CLOSE & SEAL your crawl space door.  That is your outside wind-blocker!  Seal it tight!
  • DRIP a steady stream of water from one or two interior sinks spread-out in your home.
  • UNHOOK garden hose from the spigot and cover exterior faucets with insulating material.
  • KNOW where the main water shut-off valve is located so you can quickly turn off that water if a pipe does burst.  Make a bee-line to it if you hear water!

Every winter season we get those sad phone calls from customers who have frozen and then burst pipes.  Taking these quick precautions could make a big difference between a fun holiday or a horribly wet one in your home.

Questions? We've got answers!

You buy insurance to protect your finances from life's surprises. But unless you know the finer points of your policies, you could be left with another surprise -- no coverage where you thought you had it.  We get questions almost daily asking is this covered?  We do our best to give the most accurate and easy to understand answers we can offer.  I thought it might be good to share some of the more common questions (and one not so common) that we get here in the agency!  Hopefully, this will help...

Merry Christmas & THANK YOU!
