Winter has arrived in Edmonton, and with that it is time to take some preventative winter plumbing measures. Winter plumbing issues like pipe leakage, flooding and water damage can be easily prevented. You just have to take do the following:
Water Heater Maintenance
Your hot water tank needs to work harder in the winter to ensure you can take hot showers and baths. In order to prevent the hot water tank from excessive over-use in winter it is a good idea to slightly lower the temperature gauge of the hot water tank. Before you do this is it a good idea to contact yegplumbers.ca to ensure you are within the reasonable temperature thresholds.
When temperatures start getting below zero, this is when the water in your pipes can freeze. Once the water freezes it expands and can cause the pipes to burst due to the increased pressure. The way to prevent pipes from bursting is to always maintain warm temperatures in your house. The ideal temperature is 20+ degrees. Should you be unfortunate to experience burst or frozen pipes the first thing to do is to shut off your water main valve, then give a call to your emergency Edmonton plumbers yegplumbers.ca
