    • Disconnect those exterior water faucets.
    • Insulate exposed pipes and outdoor fixtures.
    • A slow drop in indoor sinks by exterior walls can stop pipes from freezing.

    • Maintain an indoor temperature of at least 68 degrees (and warmer if possible).
    • Get those space heaters ready by checking them for proper operation.
    • If you’ve got vents shut in unused rooms, now is the time to open them.
