Winterization Saves Time & Money
Maine winters are cold. If the plumbing system in your home, camp or business hasn’t been properly winterized, there’s a strong likelihood damage will occur. Damage you may not notice until the temperature warms enough for the ice in your pipes to melt. If this happens, water could flood your property causing unwanted water damage. Possibly leaving you with the hefty cost of replacing furniture, cabinetry, flooring, piping, not to mention construction materials.
One of the best ways to avoid this situation is to hire a professional plumber to winterize your property. Tim’s Plumbing has years of experience winterizing homes, camps and businesses. We take our job seriously. We know how much damage poor winterization can cause. Our winterization procedures are designed to protect your property from late fall, through the coldest part of winter, into late spring when it’s time for us to open your property back up for the summer months. Here are a few examples of the types of places we winterize:
- Seasonal Homes
- Small seasonal businesses
- Hunting/family camps
- Investment properties
- Large commercial properties
- Municipal properties
We Suggest Having Your Heat Tape Professional Installed
Using heat tapes is a fast and inexpensive way to keep your pipes from freezing in the winter. However, they can also be very dangerous if installed improperly or left unrepaired. Our professional technicians at Tim’s Plumbing highly experienced at installing and repairing a large variety of different types of heat tapes. We take the utmost precautions when evaluating your home for heat tape use. We figure out which type of heat tape is appropriate, how many you’ll need and where they need to be installed. Our goal is to help keep your home safe and your plumbing working efficiently all winter long.
Insulating Your Pipes Can Prevent Heat Loss & Condensation
Insulating pipes is a plumbing service offered at Tim’s Plumbing. Often times it’s a one-time service that produces year-round saving. With insulated pipes, your hot water stays hot during the cold months, and your cold water stays cold during the warmer months. Wrapping your pipes with the proper insulation reduces heat loss, which helps lower your electric bill and decreases the chance of condensation, which can slowly corrode pipes and fittings.
