December is here and winter is well on its way. Here are a few Winterizing details for you:

  • Please remove hoses from outdoor spigots
  • Please install styrofoam covers on all outdoor spigots
  • Drain hoses coil and store in garage if possible
  • On the coldest nights (below zero- up to about 20 degrees), run just a small dripping amount of water on faucets that are on an exterior wall (eg: kitchen faucet if the sink is at a window looking outside.)
  • Be sure to have de-icer on hand to reduce any slipping on steps and pathways
  • Consider a new doormat and/or boot tray to cut down on tracking in the rain and muck
  • Check furnace filters and replace as needed. This will also help out with heating costs
