Winterizing Tips

It is best to hire a professional to winterize or de-winterize a home.
  • Turn water off at main supply valve outside the house unless the heating system uses water. Tag the valve - DO NOT TURN ON - WINTERIZED.
  • Drain hot water heaters and shut off gas or electricity to tank.
  • Put anti-freeze in toilet tanks.
  • Fill all traps with anti-freeze.
  • Tape shut and tag toilet bowls with DO NOT USE - WINTERIZED.
  • Tag sinks and faucets - DO NOT USE.
  • Set thermostat at 55-60 degrees and tag - DO NOT CHANGE.
  • Check furnace to see if it is in operating condition. Light gas pilot if necessary.
