Winterizing for When You’re Away

If you’re planning on getting away for a week or more during the winter, you should take extra steps to winterize you home and ensure that it is safe and secure while vacant, says Travelers Insurance. If you plan to be gone for an extended period, protect your pipes from freezing and bursting by turning off the water supply and draining the pipes. For shorter trips, check pipes’ insulation and set the thermostat to at least 55° to keep them flowing. And always complete routine maintenance on the furnace to ensure that it continues to function while you’re not there.
