Oh Snap, it’s gonna be Cold!
South Louisiana is not known for its cold weather. Only a few times a year do we experience freezing temperatures and the possibility of a hard freeze. With the lows getting into the low 30’s tomorrow and possibly Wednesday, here are a few quick reminders so you can protect your pipes and plumbing.
Close inside valves supplying water to outdoor faucets and hookups. Open outdoor faucets to allow residual water to drain; be sure to keep them open during the cold weather, while the water supply is turned off. Keep garage doors closed to help protect water pipes located in the garage. Open the doors on cabinets where plumbing is located. This can help allow warmer air to circulate around the pipes. For pipes that are at risk of freezing (both hot and cold water pipes), let water drip from faucets. Keep the heat in your home set at a minimum of 55 degrees. Stay warm out there!
