Homeowners need to protect property from winter chill

Posted On Mon, February 6, 2012

The winter weather can be unpredictable and treacherous, and a homeowner could be in trouble if they aren't prepared. The Property Casualty Insurers Association noted that they should be careful, as the winter time can bring many hazards.

The association noted that it was important to prevent against frozen pipes, as this can be a huge issue for many homes, according to the report. In order to deter the issue, insulating the pipes could be effective. In addition, it could help to be sure that the area is warm, and consistently has warm air in the area.

Keeping the heat in the home at a decent temperature will benefit, as this can keep pipes warm, without much worry, the source said. However, if a pipe does burst, know where the main shut-off valve is and ensure it is easily accessible.

Furthermore, consumers may benefit from checking up on their home insurance. If it is not as sufficient at they would like, it could help to compare home insurance quotes to see if there is a better plan available.
