Here are some inexpensive and helpful tips to winterize your home and prevent leaks.

Posted: 13 Nov 2014 07:07 AM PST by Newsleak (American Leak Detection):

Preparing your home for winter can be a difficult job if you don’t know where to start. Your home is likely to face a series of problems relating to both water and heat leaks during this time. However, leaks can be prevented by following a few simple steps that will make your home better able to handle exposure to harsh winter conditions.

Water leaks in particular can be a source of huge financial loss and ruin the structure of your home. Winterizing your home can prevent leaks while still staying on a tight budget.

Clean gutters
Your gutters can be greatly affected by water throughout the year. If your gutters are not cleaned, then blockages can cause water to redirect itself into your home. During the winter, this water can freeze and cause damage to your gutters and your roof where it is attached. This can possibly cause a hole or crack to form, whereby snow can melt and leak through. Additionally, icicles commonly form on gutters, which should be removed, or else dripping from melting can cause damage if temperatures change.

Turn water heater down
It might be tempting to use more hot water during the winter simply as a matter of comfort to face the cold, but this can cause a series of problems to occur. Your temperature gauge on your water heater should be turned down slightly or else the system could become too hot and begin leaking. Also, if there is any buildup or blockages in your water heater, then they could become exacerbated if the temperature is increased.

Change filters
Debris and dust within your air vents and filters should be removed to allow the proper flow of air into your home. You can purchase new filters and install them yourself in a matter of minutes. This will keep your heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system from backing up while also preventing moisture and condensation from forming.

Seal any cracks
Use caulking around your home to seal any cracks both indoors and out. Roofs, windows, chimneys, and vents can all be potential problem areas where water can leak in. Caulking can be applied quickly and inexpensively while providing a firm seal.

Insulate pipes
Apply rubber or foam insulation around the exterior of your pipes so that the water inside your plumbing system doesn’t freeze. If a pipe becomes frozen, then it will likely crack and water will flood into your home.

Posted: 12 Nov 2014 08:58 AM PST Newsleak (American Leak Detection)

Winter can be a particularly perilous season for your home. Constant exposure to the elements can corrode pipes, eat away at wood and freeze the water inside your plumbing system. When this happens, water will expand and eventually cause your pipes to burst. This breakage can lead a large amount of damage as water floods into your home. Not only will you have to pay for the cost of repair to your home and your plumbing, but also for the rise in your water bill from the leaking.

Ensure your home is properly protected against freezing this winter by following these easy steps:

Install indoor insulation
You can purchase rubber or foam insulation from any hardware store and wrap it around the pipes inside your home. This can be done quickly and cheaply by just securing the insulation with tape. This will keep your pipes from becoming too cold during the winter.

Check outdoor insulation
Any outdoor equipment like hoses and irrigation systems that can be turned off and removed for the winter should be detached. Additionally, apply heating tape around pipes outside of your home, including faucets.

Let water run slowly
If a sudden deep freeze hits your region, you may wake up to find your water is not running at all because it is frozen. During winter, it’s best to let your hot water run slowly throughout the day in intervals. This will keep water circulating in your home’s pipes, thus preventing standing water from freezing. Don’t use a lot of water at high pressure, because this will only make your water heater work harder, perhaps causing a breakage in pipes.

Keep cabinets open
For pipes that are hidden behind cabinet doors under sinks and behind closets, keeping those doors open will allow your pipes to be exposed to room temperature. This is an easy way to keep your pipes from being negatively affected by a cold climate.

Use a space heater
If you think your pipes are frozen or are just trying to be proactive, a small space heater can be placed near your plumbing so that pipes will thaw out. This can be used as a preventative measure throughout the winter. Be extremely careful with portable space heaters to prevent damages or risk of fire. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and warnings.

Call a plumber
One of the best ways to make sure your pipes are protected from the winter is to get a plumber to run a quick checkup of your plumbing system. They can insulate pipes for you and give you important tips to prevent leaks.
