Winter Checklist ­ Plumbing and Heating

It is hard to believe it is already December here in Colorado! Blue Mountain Plumbing and HVAC is located in Thornton, Colorado, and after servicing the Denver Metro Area for several winters, our technicians know the difference it makes when homeowners check off a winter check list for their plumbing and heating needs.

Sprinklers: If you have not already had your sprinklers blown out and winterized your system, this should be the first item on your checklist. Although the Denver metro area has been experiencing some very warm days well into late fall, this is the time of year you could face damage if you don’t check this item off the list. In addition, make sure all hoses are disconnected to keep them from freezing and splitting.

Air Filters: Check your air filters. It is important to replace filters in a timely manner to keep your heating system running efficiently.

Maintenance Check: Schedule a maintenance check for your heating and plumbing systems with the arrival of winter. The experts here at Blue Mountain Plumbing and HVAC are experts when it comes to frozen pipes, heating system repairs, plumbing repairs, and many other types of repairs. Scheduling maintenance checks will help keep your house up­to­date, and catch problems before they become dangerous.

Freezing Pipes: If the weather falls below freezing, it is a good idea to keep your heat on and make sure you leave your faucets running at a slight dribble. This will keep your pipes from freezing, and should most definitely be a part of your winter checklist.
