Winter is coming. And though that’s not as ominous as it is in Game of Thrones, winter can cause plumbing issues.
Here are the 3 most common problems you could face
When freezing temperatures mix with high water pressure, you can end up with a frozen pipe. Watch for restricted water flow, which is an indicator your pipe may have frozen.
To prevent this, let a little water constantly run through your tap. The down side is this will likely increase your water bill. The upside is you won’t face the cost to repair a frozen or burst pipe.
No Hot Water
This is a common problem thanks to the combination of lower outside temperatures and performance problems with your water heater.
To prevent it, take time between showers to let the water temperature build back up. Also, set your water heater temperature a bit higher. For those with gas water heaters, make sure your pilot light is lit.
One of the worst winter problems is to turn up the heat without your home’s temperature warming up.
To prevent this, have your furnace or boiler checked by a professional before colder weather takes hold. This is something you should do each year because your heating system runs full time in the winter.
You can enjoy the beauty of winter without suffering from the cold.
