Winterization: Protect Your Hudson Valley Home This Winter
If you own a property in the Hudson Valley that is vacant during the winter months it is critical that you take the necessary steps to winterize the property to prevent against damage. Without proper winterization, vacant Hudson Valley homes are susceptible to whole house freeze ups that can significantly damage the plumbing and heating systems. When broken pipes thaw additional property damage from flooding may also occur.
What is Winterization?
Winterization is the process of safeguarding your home from potential damage from freezing temperatures. Once completed, a house can safely sit empty without utilities (including heat). During the winterization process, the home’s plumbing system is completely purged of water. This includes draining the water heater and all of the piping and filling various fixtures with anti-freeze solutions.
What is Dewinterization?
In addition to complete winterization services, T.Webber also completes dewinterization services. Dewinterization is the process of reversing a winterization and bringing a properties’ plumbing and heating systems back up to service. It is typically completed at the end of the winter season, or as soon as the home is ready to be occupied.
