Prepare For The Winter Storm Headed Your Way!

December 21, 2022 | Blog

Winter storms bring a unique set of challenges for homeowners in Lake Charles, including the risk of extreme cold temperatures. The cold weather can wreak havoc on your home’s plumbing system, causing pipes to freeze and potentially burst. To protect your plumbing system from the cold and potential damage, Ace Air Conditioning & Plumbing recommends following these tips.

1. Insulate Your Pipes – The most important step you can take to protect your pipes from freezing is to insulate them. This is especially important for pipes in unheated areas such as the attic, basement, and exterior walls. Make sure to use thick foam insulation that covers the entire length of the pipe and seal the ends with tape or caulk.

2. Keep Cabinet Doors Open – During extreme cold, it’s a good idea to keep the cabinet doors under your kitchen and bathroom sinks open. This will allow warm air to circulate around the pipes and help prevent them from freezing.

3. Let Faucets Drip – During extremely cold weather, it’s a good idea to let your faucets drip slightly. This will help keep the water moving and reduce the risk of the pipes freezing.

4. Keep Thermostat Set – Make sure to keep your thermostat set at a consistent temperature throughout the winter. This will help keep your pipes from freezing, as well as keep your energy bills low.

5. Know Where Your Shutoff Valves Are – Knowing where your shutoff valves are located can be a lifesaver if a pipe does freeze and burst. Make sure to locate your shutoff valves before the cold weather hits and be prepared to turn them off in an emergency.

By following these tips, you can help protect your home’s plumbing system from the cold winter weather.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Friendly and Honest

Technician came out to my house within an hour of calling and he was very friendly and honest. I was expecting to have to replace the whole unit or have a salesman try to have me “upgrade” to a newer unit but Mr Jeff was quick to diagnose and correct the problem at a reasonable cost.

Excellent Service!

We called Ace on a Sunday. Several hours later a serviceman arrived, inspected the air conditioner, and got it working. The serviceman was quite knowledgeable. Excellent service!

Highly Recommended

Jace went out of his way to get my air conditioner repaired so that my home would be comfortable for the weekend. He was extremely polite and professional. I highly recommend ACE as a company and Jace as a technician. I could not have been more pleased with the service I received.
