Prevent Ice and Snow Damage to Your Home

How to Prevent Ice and Snow Damage to Your Home

To prevent your home’s pipes from freezing and cracking during the winter, drain excess water from outdoor faucets and sprinkler systems. You should also disconnect any outdoor hoses, covering the faucets with insulators. Pipes traveling through unheated areas such as the garage, basement or attic should be insulated. To avoid ice dams, clean out gutters and keep your roof clear with a roof rake, removing the excess weight that accumulating snow can cause.

Nashua Homeowner Recognizes the Inefficiencies of Electric Heat

Electric is one of the least efficient methods for heating a home. With most baseboards placed against the outside walls you are constantly combatting the cold outdoor temperatures and heat loss. Baseboard heaters are also often inhibited by curtains and carpeting, cutting off the circulation of warm air throughout the room. If the alternative of placing baseboard heating on an interior wall were done, this would result in a room with heavy drafts from the window.
