Reasons to Winterize Your Plumbing System December 4, 2018

Reasons to Winterize Your Plumbing System, Pine Grove, California

In many areas of the country, frigid temperatures cause residential plumbing systems to freeze. When water turns to ice, it expands, and this strain could damage pipes. That’s why you should have a plumber winterize equipment before temperatures drop. By looping antifreeze through your system, they can prevent potential breakdowns and leaks. Here are a few advantages of investing in this service.

How Can Homeowners Benefit From Winterizing Their Pipes?

Lower Water Bills

Even small leaks can drain several gallons of water. If you don’t notice an issue at first, a spike in monthly water bills could point to the problem. A plumber will make these fixtures less vulnerable to splits and cracks, reducing waste and keeping your utility costs low. 

Avoid Plumbing Problems

Sutter-Creek-California-plumberPlumbing system malfunctions can be inconvenient headaches for the entire household. Beyond pipes, water heaters are also prone to freezing in low temperatures. If your unit is broken, there won’t be hot water for bathing or doing dishes and laundry until a plumber can be contracted to fix it. However, by wintering the equipment, you can prevent disruptions to your family’s routine and the cost of serious repair.

Prevent Property Damage

Much of your property’s plumbing system runs through the house infrastructure. If a pipe bursts, the moisture could corrode drywall, warp floorboards, or saturate ceilings before you know to call a plumber for help. Mold could also grow quickly in the damp conditions, which could make people sick. In this case, a little preventative maintenance can go a long way.
