5 Tips For Upcoming Freezing Weather

Posted by Bonnie Bornstein Fertel on Tue, Jan 29, 2019 @ 02:50 PM

This week the weather is predicted to be bitter freezing cold with temperatures at or near 0 degrees at night!

Here are a few fast tips designed to help you avoid a freeze-up that would ultimately result in no water to a fixture or a burst pipe when temperatures rise.

  1. Allow water to run in a slow stream from any faucet that is piped on an outside wall or unheated space.
    1. Drafts at single digit temperatures and lower can cause a pipe to freeze.  Running water can prevent freezing.
  2. Open cabinets under vanities in colder areas of your home so that the warmth of the room will extend to the piping..
  3. Do not lower or setback the thermostat for your heating system.
    1. Your boiler or furnace will have to run harder and longer to recover when outside temperatures are frigid and might not catch up to the setting you desire. Don't turn the heat down!
  4. Have a neighbor or relative check your home if you are a winter snowbird, on vacation or away for business.
  5. Do you have outside hose faucets? Be sure that you've had your outside hose faucets winterized, turned off and drained.

Water Damage - A Devastation Indeed!

Posted by Bonnie Bornstein Fertel on Sun, Sep 16, 2018 @ 09:12 AM

When is the last time you checked your sump pump?

#HurricaneFlorence is stalled through the Carolinas and has, to date, dumped more than 40" of water. Imagine the devastation and those homeowners that have yet to return to their residences only to find disaster, destruction and despair.

While New Jersey has not been hit by a storm of this magnitude, weather changes are obvious. Out of sight, out of mind...an expression we use often. This week it has become popular vernacular. 

Those of us with sump pumps often don't pay any mind to that appliance sitting in a hole in the floor of your home. That sump pump that is sitting quietly in the corner of our basement only becomes a concern when it's raining or we're experiencing melting of tremendous amounts of snow.

It's finally getting warmer in New Jersey. As I look outside my window I see lots of greenery, sun peaking through the blinds and I can hear the birds chirping. Hooray!

Once upon a time there was a storm, and while it seems forever ago, it was only 4 days ago that our 2nd (and more to come so they say) Nor'Easter hit our area.
