The best strategy is always prevention. If you notice a leak or malfunctioning appliance, have them fixed before the issue becomes more of a hazard. In the winter, when pipe bursts are a risk, prevent your pipes from freezing by shutting off exterior pipes and ensuring sufficient warm air circulation to plumbing that runs along exterior walls. To stay on top of your home maintenance 180 Plumbing & Heating offers an Annual Care Plan to help monitor and upkeep your home plumbing and heating systems to ensure your home stays warm and dry all year round.
