Winterizing a Vacant Home
It is wise to have your plumbing and heating system winterized by a professional unless you are well-informed on the procedures necessary.
If you or someone you know has a vacant home or vacation property, careful decisions need to be made to prevent expensive repairs from frozen plumbing. In the spring of 2008 we inspected an unusually high number of homes with damaged plumbing (or worse) due to lack of or improperly performed winterization. One customer spent well over $5,000 on plumbing repairs, and then more to repair the walls, ceiling, and flooring that were damaged by water and the process of replacing the pipes.
