Heat during Winter

Heat during Winter:

Freezing temperatures are with us each winter! Be sure to keep your furnace turned on throughout the winter and your thermostat at least close to 60ºF, even if you plan to leave town for a time.

If a water pipe freezes and bursts, there is a real risk that your home will be flooded, possibly your neighbors’ as well. Until shut off at main valves, the City’s pressurized water supply is endless. In past and even current winters, a couple buildings have suffered burst water pipes and extensive water damage. Each resulted from pipes freezing after owners turned off their heat and left town.

Please set and maintain your heat to a reasonable temperature and enjoy peace of mind while on vacation! Thank you.
