snow pipeNew York has some of the coldest winters in the United States. That being said, it is without saying that temperatures are sure to drop below freezing this winter. When temperatures drop this low, the water in your home has a chance of freezing, which can cause long term, costly damages to your home. In order to avoid these types of damages it’s important to get your home winterized before there’s even a chance for temperatures to drop to below freezing.

When the professionals at Hubbard Plumbing come to winterize your home, there is quite a bit that gets done. We start by draining the pipes of your home by removing the meter and then pushing high air pressure through the water pipes to empty all of the lines. After that, our professionals will drain the water heater and shut off the burner. Then we will empty the toilets and tanks and fill the traps in your home with RV antifreeze.

Even once everything is flushed out, you will still need to supply heat to the area surrounding the meter in order to keep the inlet water supply from freezing. The recommended light bulb to hold this temperature is a 100-watt light bulb.
