Everybody should close their crawlspace vents this time of year and remember to undo your garden hoses from the bibs. If you have a vacant house, or a bathroom or guest area that you don’t use all the time, you should also take a few extra steps to prevent burst pipes. If your bathroom is on an exterior wall, leave the doors open on any cabinet that has plumbing in it. Don’t close bedroom or bathroom doors or shut off the heating vents. Keep those pipes warm enough to prevent the water from freezing!
