When Is the Best Time to Winterize My Home?

October 27, 2017 in Winterizing

Home winterizing is essential if you live in an area where temperatures are likely to drop below the freezing point. Here in Michigan, that can happen quite often. It is always a good idea to be prepared for the worst, especially when it comes to extremely cold temperatures. That’s why our crew here at 45th Parallel Plumbing offers winterizing services to help eliminate common plumbing and sewer disasters.

When the weather turns treacherous outside, you can expect it to affect your home’s plumbing and sewer system. Winterizing your home early can help to prevent serious issues such as frozen pipes or burst sewer lines from occurring. However, it’s important that you winterize your home at the right time so that you don’t wait too late and wake up to a plumbing emergency on a cold December morning.

Protect Your Home’s Plumbing System by Winterizing in the Fall

To make sure that you avoid any issues with your plumbing and sewer system this winter, we suggest that our customers start the process in early fall. Since cold temperatures can occur long before the official winter season, our company tends to start making winterizing service calls at the end of September or early October, if not before then.

Here at 45th Parallel Plumbing, we offer winterizing services for your residential home, as well as any vacant homes (such as a vacation home or rental property). Empty homes are especially vulnerable during the chilly winter months since the pipes aren’t frequently used. For these locations, we can empty out the water heater, drain all water from the pipes, and open the faucets to drain the main supply line thoroughly. This will prevent the pipes from freezing and bursting so that your vacant property will be ready for use in the spring.

While winterizing is obviously useful for vacant properties, all homes can benefit from this service. Our team can ensure the pipes in and around your home and all traps are protected from extreme temperatures when we come out to perform winterizing services.

Enjoy Protection from the Outdoor Elements All Year Round

At 45th Parallel Plumbing, our pipe protection services do not end when winter is over. We also offer de-winterization services once warmer temperatures arrive. When you sign up for this service, our team will come out to your site and refill the water tanks, reconnect any drains, and make sure that your system is working as it should without any issues. When de-winterizing, we will also check for any leaks from your pipes and flush all toilets to eliminate air from your pipes.

Take care of your home and avoid any serious issues this upcoming winter by getting in contact with the professionals here at 45th Parallel Plumbing. We will ensure that your current or vacant residence stays protected from frigid temperatures so that you don’t have to pay out expensive cleanup and reconstruction fees. Avoid a water main break or sewer line burst this winter when you call our team today at 989-710-2141.
