Apartment for a Freeze

PREPPING YOUR

UrbanOne T White.png

Watch Local Weather and take the following precautions on days temperatures are expected to be below 32 degrees.

  • Leave indoor water faucets on a slow drip.

    • Remember, just a slow drip will do. There’s no need for a steady stream of water, which can get expensive. Keeping some circulation of water in your pipes will help prevent them from freezing.

  • Open cabinet doors under sinks

    • Opening your cabinet doors allows for warm air to circulate around water lines.

  • Keep your heat on, to 65 degrees or warmer

    • Even if you go out of town, keep your heat running to keep your apartment warmer than the freezing weather outside.

  • Make sure all pets are inside

    • In freezing temperatures, make sure your furry friends are warm and inside

  • Reverse your fan

    • Turn your ceiling fans on low in reverse (clockwise when looking up) to  better circulate warm air.

  • Other Helpful Reminders

    • Watch for ice on stairs or dark areas - even if you don't see ice, it may still be present.  When possible, stay inside.

    • Prepare with needed supplies and extra blankets in the event of a power outage.

    • Don't forget your plants outside.

    • Be prepared with tools to scrape ice off your car windows.

    • Purchase freeze resistant windshield wiper fluid and spray it a couple times to circulate the lines.

    • If possible, stay off the roads.  Although the city may implement road safety measures, there will still be patches of ice on the roads and walkways. 

POSSIBILITY OF ICE!!  TAKE CAUTION WHEN USING STAIRS & WALKWAYS
