Posted on Friday, January 5, 2018 at 8:27 AM


The air temps are predicted to over in the single digits this weekend, here are a few safety tips to ensure your home is protected.


•Keep the temperature inside all areas of your house from falling below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

•Insulate unheated areas of your house, particularly the attic and crawl spaces.

•Apply plastic covering to windows to help reduce heat transfer.

•Wrap exposed pipes with heat tape or use pipe sleeves to help prevent them from freezing.

•Periodically inspect the roof drainage system for blockages or leaks.

•Keep snow accumulations to a minimum to help prevent ice dam formation.

•Use a roof rake to remove accumulated snow from areas of the roof you can safely reach. Consult a professional roofing contractor to remove snow from steep areas or areas you cannot comfortably reach. Never climb onto a snow- or ice-covered roof.
