Winterizing a home

Recommended Posts

From what I've seen of winterized homes going through hard winters, the best winterization would be keeping the heat on and installing thermostatic sensors in appropriate locations and tie them to one of those online safety alert computer programs.

Alarm sounds, send over a technician.

From what I hear banks don’t pay much to have a home winterized ($40 - $50) and they seem to get what they pay for. This past Spring I cannot count the number of homes that had broken pipes when they were de-winterized.

Pipes, radiators, delaminated drywall, loose tape seams, warped flooring, wood lath and scratch coats separating, etc., etc. Freezing a house screws them up.
