Here are 3 Tips to Protect Your Home this Weekend

  • Consider an insulated blanket for your hot water heater. This is an easy and inexpensive way to improve energy efficiency and save money. Less than $30.
  • If it's chilly downstairs but warm upstairs, balance to air distribution. Try closing some vents upstairs. And make sure furniture is away from the vent. Rule of thumb: The distance should be equivalent to the width of the vent. This will allow the warm air to circulate thru the house.
  •  Keep a slow trickle of water flowing thru faucets connected to pipes that run thru unbeaten spaces. This will help prevent pipes from bursting and causing expensive damage to your home.
