Winter Prep: 4 Tips to Get Your Home Ready for Cold Weather, Henrietta, New York

The crisp air and low humidity mean fall has arrived, and winter’s colder temperatures won’t be far behind. Getting your home ready now can help save money and prevent disasters. Anderson Water Systems in Rochester, NY, provides homes and businesses with a wide range of water purification systems. They also offer standby generators for those strong snow storms when the electricity has stopped working.

To protect your home during the winter, consider the following tips:

  • water purificationShut Off Outside Faucets: Prevent undrained water from freezing and causing pipes to burst by turning off all outside faucets and disconnecting garden hoses. As an added precaution, turn off the water valve to these faucets and insulate the pipes around your water purification system.
  • Check Your Sump Pump: If you have a sump pump, check that it’s still working by pouring a few gallons of water in it and verifying that it gets pumped out properly. 
  • Drain Lawn Sprinklers: Another way to prevent damage caused by frozen water is by draining your lawn irrigation system’s pipes and spigots. It’s best to call a professional company to tackle this important task.
  • Add Downspouts: To keep water from accumulating up against your home, add a downspout that extends a minimum of three to four feet away from the foundation. This will also keep any ice from forming against exterior walls.
