It's home winterization time as colder weather approaches

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - It's that time of year to think about getting your house winterized with more snow and colder weather in the forecast.

A plumbing and heating company told us what you should do to get ready for this upcoming winter.

“As a homeowner, you can visually inspect your system for any issues,” said Justin Mancoronal, service manager at Harvey’s Plumbing.

“But we do recommend having a professional come in once a year to go through the system to make sure that all the mechanical portions of that unit are working and make sure they are clear and ready to go for winter,” Mancoronal said.

Here are some of the other things that Harvey's Plumbing and Heating recommended to get ready for winter:

  • Unhook the water hose from your house and cover your outside faucet so it doesn't freeze.
  • Change your filters on your heating and air conditioner.
  • Cover your outdoor condenser from being covered with snow.
  • Make sure your house is set at 65 degrees if you’re inside; if you leave the residence, turn it to 55 degrees.
  • Have your boiler checked by a professional.

Here are some plumbing and heating resources if you feel like your home is in need of servicing before the winter:
