How to Prepare Your Entire Home for Winter

at | Category: Plumbing Repair

plumber-new-jerseyWhen weather strikes in New Jersey it can effect every major system in your home. Your heating system, plumbing, water heater, gas lines, and several other areas become vulnerable to the freezing temperatures, cold winds, moisture and snow. You can take steps now to make sure that all your home’s systems are running smoothly. This insures that you can depend on them when you need them the most. Here are some helpful tips to help you gear up for the harsh New Jersey winter.

Protect Your Plumbing

First things first. Have your plumbing system in New Jersey inspected for any leaks or damage anywhere along the pipe system. Damaged pipes can allow cold air inside the system. It also causes leaks which can create frozen water along the plumbing network and cause your pipes to burst. Something else you can do to protect your pipes is to have them protected with insulation. There are different types of insulation available depending on if you have steel pipes, PVC, iron other types of piping material. All outside plumbing needs to be covered. This greatly reduces the possibility of damage when the temperatures plummets below freezing.

Keep Your Family Warm

When your heater goes out during the winter months, it’s more than just an inconvenience. It can compromise your family’s warmth and safety. With simple preventative maintenance, you system will run smoothly from November through April with no problems at all. A professional heating & air contractor can make an on-site visit in order to determine exactly what your HVAC system needs are. Every component is inspected and then repairs or part replacements are conducted. A properly running system not only guarantees your safety; it also helps your heater to operate more efficiently and saves you money.

Gas Line Maintenance & Repair

One of the most critical systems in your home is your gas line. As temperatures drop you’ll be using more gas this winter, so proper maintenance is a must. Many New Jersey homeowners use gas to power up several items in their home. They rarely have their gas line inspected, however, until they notice a problem, or worse, a disaster strikes. There are strict city, state, and federal guidelines regarding gas lines. So make sure your gas line is inspected, repaired, or replaced by a New Jersey certified professional. Remember, if you smell gas, call an FS Plumbing & Heating specialist right away. Never try to take care of the problem yourself.

Water Heater Inspections

Another key component in your home is your water heater. This is also one of the items that many homeowners assume will last forever. Water heaters, like everything else, need ongoing care, however, in order to maintain a high level of performance. Regardless of what type of water heater you have (most models are either tank or tankless), it’s goo to get an inspection to make sure all the parts are properly working. A thorough inspection will include checking for sediment at the bottom of the tank, checking the tank for any damage or cracks, making sure all connections are tight, and inpsecting the condition of the heating element.
