Alamance County Emergency Services warns over the next couple weeks of extremely below average temps. Here are a few tips:
1. Let hot/cold water drip from a faucet to avoid pipes from freezing.
2. Open cabinet doors to allow more heat to circulate to pipes under sink or outer wall.
3. Make sure heat is set to no lower than 55 degrees.
4. Unscrew all outdoor hoses.
5. If you plan to be away, have someone check house daily for leaks.
