The groundhog predicts… six more weeks of winter!

And, this week, much of the country will really feel it, with many experiencing frigid temperatures and/or digging out from heavy snow.

We’re sharing important information on how to help protect your customers’ homes and businesses from frozen pipes. We encourage you to pass this information on to help your customers check and mitigate problems. Feel free to share via social media, post on your website or paste into an email to customers. Keep in mind a little prevention can make a big difference:

  • A burst pipe can cause more than $5,000 in damage
  • 37 percent of all frozen pipes occur in basements
  • Buildings built before the 1960s are often the most vulnerable
