Holiday Hazard Prevention

As the Holidays are vastly approaching, the wintry weather also likes to make an appearance. With this weather can come many hazards. One of the biggest insurance claims during the winter has to do with bursting pipes. So this holiday season, we have decided to give you some tips on how to prevent frozen or bursting pipes.

- Look for and seal air leaks around pipes.

- Keep garage door closed if your water supply lines are in the garage.

- Open cabinets to help warmer air circulate around pipes.

- When weather outside is close to freezing temperatures, let cold water drip from your faucets. Running this water helps prevent them from freezing

-Try to keep thermostat temperature consistent both day and night

-If you leave your home for an extended period of time, set the temperature on your thermostat to go no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Follow these steps to keep your holidays bright. From all of us at Rob Rueseler & Associates, “Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New year”
