As winter sets in, homeowners across the Farmington Valley are bracing for the chill and extra precipitation. While most people focus on heating their homes, one crucial aspect often goes overlooked – the plumbing and water services that keep everything running smoothly. We understand the importance of maintaining reliable water services during the winter months and want to share our top tips for a comfortable and worry-free winter.
1. Frozen Pipe Prevention
One of the primary concerns during winter is the risk of frozen pipes. This is a common issue and can be easily prevented. When water freezes inside pipes, it expands and can lead to pipe bursts, causing significant damage. Take time to add insulation and heating solutions to safeguard pipes from freezing temperatures. By investing in their preventive services, homeowners can avoid the inconvenience and expense of dealing with burst pipes.
2. Water Heater Maintenance
A reliable supply of hot water becomes even more crucial during the winter. Make sure to have your water heater maintenance completed to ensure that your system is operating at peak efficiency. Regular check-ups and tune-ups can extend the lifespan of your water heater, reduce energy consumption, and provide consistent hot water for your household’s needs.
3. Water Filtration and Treatment
Winter weather can bring challenges to water quality, and it is important to address issues such as hard water, sediment, or contaminants. During site visits, our team can test your water, immediately determine your water quality, and recommend water filtration and treatment solutions customized to your needs.

There are a few ways to optimize water usage to ensure efficiency; from water-saving appliances and fixtures to identifying and fixing leaks. Sometimes small changes can have a big impact on water savings, contributing to environmental sustainability and cost savings.
