Winterizing Tip #4:
“Heat Tape” is another inexpensive way you can “winterize” your own home with just a quick trip to your local hardware store or home center!

Think of a rope wrapped around pipes that you plug-in like your electric heating blanket.
Winter is upon us! The weather will inevitably bring freezing temperatures that have the potential to cause havoc on plumbing systems!
