January 26, 2019


Be Safe and Prepared!
Extreme cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills are upon us!  We want all our valued customers and friends to be safe and prepared.  Here are a few tips to keep you and your home safe during this arctic freeze!
Inside your Home:
•  Keep your circulation fan running on your HVAC system to minimize cold spots in your home
•  Keep thermostats at a comfortable temperature day and night.  Now is not the time to lower your thermostat during the nighttime!
•  Keep cabinet doors open under sinks for heat circulation especially for sinks on exterior walls
•  Keep a small trickle of water running at faucets to help prevent pipes from freezing
•  Catch potential problems early by inspecting any known trouble areas of your property at least twice daily for any signs of cold related damage
•  Check all chimney and exhaust flues to be sure they are clear of snow or ice
•  Inspect all carbon monoxide detectors for proper operation and replace batteries if more than one year old  
On the Road:
•  Don’t wait until you’re low on gas!  Refuel every night to be sure you’re prepared in the event you become stranded! 
•  Add fuel system additive to prevent fuel system freeze ups
•  Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle with water, high protein snacks, extra blankets, gloves, and hats
•  Check tire pressures as cold temperatures can reduce pressures
•  Park vehicles in a garage if possible
