Winter temperatures can pose a risk to your pipes. It is important to consider guarding your pipes against the freezing cold to prevent further damages to your property in the winter season. Pipes naturally burst in sub-zero temperatures. Your Bartlett residents will not appreciate frozen, flooded homes during winter—not to mention damaged properties! Save your properties from getting that large repair bill.
Avoid frozen pipes by heat taping or wrapping. Heat taping a pipe needs an electrical heating element to be put on to a pipe. This warms the pipe keeping it from freezing. Wrapping a pipe, on the other hand, can be done in many ways. These ways include a plug-in heating tape to pre-formed foam tube insulation that you can put over a pipe. The kind of protection varies as the winter temperatures differ in various locations. Do not forget to also put your outdoor water spigots with an insulated cover.
If you are planning to get things done in your exposed pipes, now is the best time to do it. Winter is fast approaching and doing it during the season is not the best idea. Wondering who you should assign the work because of your tight schedule? Giving the heat taping and wrapping task to your residents might have come into your mind already. Although this may give you back the time you previously needed but leaving pipe insulation to your inexperienced residents may not give you the right quality of work expected. Some important details might be missed out causing damages and disregarding the effort of the previous work.
With the simple methods and available materials, you can also do the heat taping and wrap all by yourself. But even with the right intentions, quality of work still can’t be achieved without proper knowledge and experience. Pipe insulation also needs to be checked regularly making this commitment a bit heavy to your current tight schedule.
