When cold weather hits, you need to prepare your home for dropping temperatures. Failure to do so can result in substantial damage due to frozen or ruptured pipes. At 45th Parallel, we’re equipped to do all your plumbing system winterizing so your home can make it through the winter unharmed.
Protect your pipes
Your home’s plumbing is susceptible to freezing in cold weather, which often results in burst and leaking pipes leaving you with a lengthy list of issues. We can take care of winterizing your home and plumbing in Alba before the cold sets in and it is too late. Preventing freezing pipes is crucial in the colder months, especially if your house will be vacant for any period. We promise that you will have nothing to worry about when it comes to your plumbing if you call us for your winterizing needs.
What Happens When Your Pipes Freeze?
When the water in your pipes freeze, it expands and creates pressure which causes ruptures, cracks, and damage. When the ground freezes and then thaws, it can shift and settle which makes underground pipes shift and they can potentially break and dislodge, causing leaks. It can be very expensive and inconvenient to repair broken pipes, especially during the winter when everything is frozen.
When you call 45th Parallel, you save yourself the financial strain and hassle of repairs by preparing your home for the winter, which costs a fraction of what you could be faced with in the event of frozen pipes. People often assume it is a simple task to winterize their plumbing—but in fact, it is something that needs to be done by professionals to ensure that it is done correctly and completely.
How Winterizing Works
When we come to winterize your home’s plumbing, we will do an initial inspection of your plumbing system to determine your needs in detail and then proceed to open all drains and valves to blow out the water from the pipes, empty the water tank, and fill all valves with a non-toxic anti-freeze liquid that will prevent freezing.
Our trained professionals will follow through with all procedures necessary to make sure every aspect of your plumbing is prepared for the cold weather. 45th Parallel is the number one company to winterize your home in the Northern Michigan area. Once the temperatures begin to rise and spring comes around, we can return to de-winterize and ensure everything is running smoothly.
