Petri Plumbing & Heating of Brooklyn offers advice to keep pipes from freezing during the lowest temperatures of February
BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Feb. 8, 2018 – Petri Plumbing & Heating, Inc., an experienced family-owned home service provider operating since 1906, is offering advice to help Brooklyn residents avoid damage from frozen pipes through the remainder of winter.
“February is a problematic month for many New Yorkers because it hints at spring with some warmer highs, but the temperatures will often still fall below freezing,” said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing & Heating. “Many homeowners begin to ignore the possibility of frozen pipes, and failing to take a little precautionary action is when damage can occur.”
The Petri Plumbing & Heating team offers five tips to help homeowners prevent pipes from freezing during winter weather.
“When you consider the amount of damage that a pipe bursting can cause in a home, the cost of repair and recovery can be tremendous,” Petri said. “Not only will the burst section of plumbing be destroyed, but the resulting flood can ruin a wall, flooring and any precious belongings that may be stored in the area. Not to mention the potential liability you can run into if you happen to be living above another owner’s space. Spending the time and perhaps a little bit of money to prevent such a disaster from happening can save thousands in repairs and give you a valuable peace of mind.”
