Do you own several rental homes? Possibly a vacation home in the DFW? Or maybe you know there is a bad storm coming in and don’t want to deal with frozen pipes? Xtreme Air Services can winterize your home for you to help you with all of these issues. Below is a list of things that you can prevent by winterizing your home:
When you don’t have water usage inside your pipe then the water is idle and if it is cold outside it will freeze. As it continues to freeze it expands and will eventually burst. If you experience a freeze break in your copper line you will have wet insulation, wet sheet rock, wet carpet, tile, wood floors and all of this can lead to mold and mildew
The water is removed from the lines making it impossible for your pipes to burst and ultimately there will be no water to flood your house
Unnecessary Utility Use
Part of the process is turning the gas off and draining the water heater tank. This prevents the usage of gas that is not needed as well as no water in the tank to have to continue to be heated on a regular basis
This is a tape that wraps along the copper lines that continues to heat the water in the lines preventing freeze breaks and flooding. This in another option that our licensed plumbers are able to give our customers if they do not want to winterize their home
In the end our goal is to always provide you with at least 2 options so that you can choose what is best for your family and your home. Both of these options are preventative steps you can take in order to protect your home. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment for more details on winterization and heat wraps!
