A Few Important Tips For Keeping Your Heater Properly Adjusted During Extreme Cold Conditions
Severe cold weather can seem like a great time to have a fire going in your fireplace at home. However, if the fireplace is in the same room as your thermostat, your central heating system may turn off as it measures the temperature in the warmer room. This can cause rooms farther away to become very cold – cold enough for your pipes to freeze!
Maintain a set point of at least 65 degrees F, even if you are not home, to prevent your pipes from freezing. This is especially important for domestic water lines exposed to outside walls. If you have had water pipes freeze in the past, think about adding heat to these areas.
