Our pipes are particularly vulnerable in the winter months. Frequent holiday guests can put extra stress on your plumbing, and the cold weather can lead to bursting, frozen pipes. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to prevent plumbing issues this winter. Read on to learn about some of these services.

General Plumbing Inspection

During an inspection, a plumber will check your pipes, drains, water lines, and more to make sure that everything is functioning properly. During the winter months, low temperatures and freezing water can lead to bursting pipes. During an inspection, your pipes will be examined for small imperfections before any weak spots can break.

Hot Water Heater Inspection

Get your hot water heater inspected before the worst of the winter so you can fix any issues before the coldest months hit. A broken hot water heater is inconvenient, uncomfortable, and can also waste energy. You can save time and money down the line by getting your hot water heater inspected this winter.

Pipe Insulation

Pipe insulation is a simple, effective way to protect your pipes during the winter. Insulation also helps to conserve hot water, which can lower your water and/or electric bills. A plumber can evaluate your pipes to determine which type of insulation is right for you.
