Long Island, Are You Ready for Winter?
No? Well, we don’t blame you.
Splish Splash rafts will soon take one last turn around the Lazy River; north fork vineyard goers will take their final winery tour; the tall ships and oversized yachts will sail back from whence they came; and the final notes of the last Jones Beach concert will drift offshore as once again winter returns to Long Island.
Here we are. Back to work, back to school, and back to business-as-usual. So, now what? It’s time to batten up the hatches and get ready for the inevitable season change. Here are some tips from your friends at Rebmann Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling.
1. Install a Generator
Be ready for anything with whole house back-up power protection. We are fully-stocked with Rood gas generators that will automatically switch on in the event of an outage.
2. Convert From Oil to Gas
Gas is a far more affordable method of household heating plus we help our customers receive the best deal from over $1000 in rebates and gift cards.
3. Flush Out Exterior Plumbing Systems
This includes any outdoor showers, hoses, and lawn irrigation systems. Completely drain and disconnect all of these fixtures and avoid frozen pipes that might burst under pressure.
4. Insulate Pipes
Insulating exposed basement pipes is an affordable way to prevent pipes from freezing. Pipe insulation also works to keep hot water hot thus reducing energy bills.
5. Get a Thorough Home Inspection Done by a Pro
Give us a call and invite one of our experienced technicians inspect your entire home. We’ll ensure that it’s in safe condition and prepared for the colder weather.
Our family is proud to have served the north and south shores of Nassau and Suffolk Counties for nearly a century. We love Long Island and we are happy to continue working to keep you and your home safe this winter as we’ve done for the last hundred years.
