It feels like just yesterday we were lounging poolside, taking a dip in the water and soaking up the sun. But, despite Chicago’s unseasonable heat wave, temperatures will inevitably drop, which means that it’s time to prepare for the year’s comfiest season.
Of course, getting yourself ready for the cool weather is a breeze. Favorite sweater? Check! Warm boots? Got it! Cup of pumpkin spice coffee? Already in hand. Prepping your home, however, takes a bit more time and effort—but it’s both essential and worthwhile. After all, who wants to face a costly plumbing or heating repair in Oak Park, IL or the surrounding areas in the middle of Chicago’s bone-chilling winters?
When temperatures eventually drop, it’s important to make sure that your home and its plumbing system are ready for the first frost. Thankfully, our American Vintage Home team is here to help.
Of course, for help with proper insulation, you can turn to the experts at American Vintage Home. Or, if your pipes are made with outdated material, our team can replace them quickly and efficiently using trenchless technology. Without wrecking your lawn, our expert technicians can fully replace your piping system with trenchless relining.
But, that’s not all. To ensure that you’ll have a steady flow of hot water during the chillier months, it’s important to test the temperature and pressure relief (TPR) valve. Once the valve is located and opened, water should pour out of the discharge pipe. If so, then the TPR valve is working properly. If not, our experts will recommend the proper repair.
While the aforementioned tasks are best tackled by a professional, there are smaller steps that you should take around your home, too. These include:
