PRINCETON, W.Va (WVNS) — With the colder weather coming in as early as Tuesday morning, December 12, 2017, utilities inside your home could be in danger.
Workers with Lowe’s in Princeton recommend taking proactive measures now before those subzero wind chills come in during the middle of this week. They say to apply heat tape and insulation around your water supply pipes, and use an external heat source if possible. Most importantly, don’t wait until it’s too late.
“During these wind chills – when it’s this low, this cold, it doesn’t take long to freeze at all,” sales associate Jason Porter said.
Porter also mentioned if you have water that runs through an unheated area, run the faucet since moving water won’t freeze as fast.
