As winter arrives in full force, so too do the Holidays. With everyone gearing up to get ready for time with family and friends this holiday season, many routine tasks can get lost in the holiday shuffle. While some priorities may shift during the Holidays, one that can’t be forgotten is protecting your home against winter’s elements.
Winter doesn’t take a vacation around the Holidays, on the contrary, this is the time of year to expect winter weather. Homes exposed to harsh winter elements can suffer serious damage, whether it’s the roof, pipes, heating infrastructure or other components of a house, winter’s arrival can place great stress on a house. The way to mitigate this risk is to be prepared as early in the year as possible. By protecting your home now, you can focus more on sledding with the kids instead of tending to winter damage around the house.
Here are three ways to help protect your home against harsh winter conditions:
- Pipe Freeze Protection: Perfect for residential applications, Pipe Freeze Protection systems offer a simple solution to keep pipes from freezing. Avoid the damage caused by burst pipes by installing Pipe Freeze Protection heating cables.
- Roof and Gutter De-Icing: Roofs and gutters are prime targets to suffer severe winter damage due to their nature of being highly exposed to the elements. Whether it’s ice dams, valleys or icicles, Roof and Gutter De-Icing Systems maintain a continuous path for ice or snow on the roof drain from the roof through the gutter and downspout.
- Surface Snow Melting Systems: Areas such as walkways, garages, loading ramps, stairways are consistently exposed to below freezing temperatures during winter. Surface Snow Melting Systems keep these areas free of snow and ice, preventing injuries and other hazards while avoiding the need for regular maintenance.
Instead of having to find quick fixes this winter, get cozy and relaxed next to the fireplace by preparing your home early. Avoid costly damage to your home by preparing it with the latest freeze protection systems available.
