Empty House? Be Sure to Winterize.

With extremely cold weather (and tough economic times) sweeping through the nation, I want to touch on a basic home maintenance issue that could help save some money and problems down the road.  If you have a home sitting vacant during the winter, be sure to winterize it.  Here in the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee, it costs about $75.00 to have a licensed plumber come in and do a complete winterization.  This basic preventative maintenance procedure can keep pipes from freezing, and that could save you hundreds of dollars down the road.
