Prepare Your Plumbing For The Cold With Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning

No one wants to deal with the damage, expense, mess, or disruption of frozen or burst pipes. Significant problems with the plumbing system can be caused by winter weather in Nashville, Valdosta & the surrounding areas. It’s best to prep your plumbing for the holidays. As your experienced and local plumbers, Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning recommends getting seasonal tasks completed as soon as possible, before the forecast predicts an extreme cold spell.

The best way to ready the plumbing system is through professional inspections and maintenance completed by Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning. We make it easy for home and business owners across Valdosta, Clyattville, Quitman, Hahira, Nashville, Adel, Lakeland, Eldorado, Tifton, Douglas, and Moultrie, GA to access essential services and ensure they are completed properly and in a timely manner. Simply give us a call at 850-616-2138 to schedule troubleshooting, winterization, repairs, and all of your plumbing needs.

Some winterization tips include:

  • Insulate pipes – Foam pipe insulation sleeves install easily and without the need to disconnect the pipe. Any accessible supply lines inside the home, in the attic, in the garage, or in the crawl space should be insulated to prevent cold temperatures from freezing water within.
  • Seal air leaks – To prevent cold outside air from affecting indoor pipes, seal up crawl space vents, access doors, or gaps around areas where plumbing pipes and electrical conduits enter the residence. Caulk cracks in exterior walls to stop drafts and heat loss.
  • Drain and disconnect components – Disconnect garden hoses from exterior faucets and allow water to drain. Turn off the water to the underground sprinklers and drain the remaining water. For frost-proof faucets with indoor shut-off valves, make sure to shut the valves.
