Avoid Water Damage to your Vacation / Seasonal Home in Manchester, Vermont

1/19/2015 (Permalink)

Avoid water damage to your vacation / seasonal home by taking these easy and inexpensive precautions:

1. Shut off main water supply valve when you leave, to minimize possible water damage.

2. Set thermostats to a minimum of 55 degrees when you are away. Heat may not get to your home's extremities - open cupboards and doors where pipes are isolated.

3. Ask a trusted neighbor to check your house periodically while you are away. Delay in recognizing and stopping water damage can substantially increase the severity of the loss.

4. Install a temperature monitor. A battery-powered monitor can notify you if the temperature in your home has fallen below a safe level.

5. Having regular heating system maintenance and automatic fuel deliveries can save on fuel bills and reduce the risk of losing heat when you need it most.

6. If you close your property for winter, drain the water pipes.
