Winter weather is making a pit stop in Texas!

With bone-chilling days ahead, here's a few resources to keep you warm and safe.

Fireplace Safety Tips:

  1. If possible, keep a window cracked open while the fire is burning.
  2. Be certain the damper or flue is open before starting a fire.  
  3. Use dry and well-aged wood.  
  4. Smaller pieces of wood placed on a grate, burn faster and produce less smoke.
  5. Clean out ashes from previous fires.

Steps to Prevent a Freeze or Break in Your Irrigation System:

  1. Put away hoses — Detach hoses from outdoor faucets.  
  2. Cover outdoor faucets — Tightly close any outdoor faucets you have.  
  3. Insulate above-ground pipes — Wrap your sprinkler system's main shut-off valve with insulation.

When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe - even at a trickle - helps prevent pipes from freezing.
