Winter is Here


Winterizing Plumbing: Key Steps

Winter has Come

To ensure your plumbing withstands the winter chill, take these steps. Start by insulating exposed pipes with foam sleeves to prevent freezing. Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses, storing them indoors. Seal any gaps or cracks in your home’s exterior to keep cold air out. Consider installing heat tape on vulnerable pipes for added protection. Inside, let faucets drip during frigid nights to keep water flowing. Inspect your water heater and flush it to remove sediment. Lastly, familiarize yourself with the location of the main water shut-off valve in case of emergencies. These measures will help you sail through winter without plumbing predicaments.

If you experience any trouble, call Baker Plumbing ASAP.

Here’s a little more information on our favorite season, winter!

Winter is Coming

Winter, coldest season of the year, between autumn and spring; the name comes from an old Germanic word that means “time of water” and refers to the rain and snow of winter in middle and high latitudes. In the Northern Hemisphere it is commonly regarded as extending from the winter solstice (year’s shortest day), December 21 or 22, to the vernal equinox (day and night equal in length), March 20 or 21, and in the Southern Hemisphere from June 21 or 22 to September 22 or 23. The low temperatures associated with winter occur only in middle and high latitudes; in equatorial regions, temperatures are almost uniformly high throughout the year.

Definition of Winter

Winter is the coldest season of the year in polar and temperate zones (winter does not occur in most of the tropical zone). It occurs after autumn and before spring in each year. Winter is caused by the axis of the Earth in that hemisphere being oriented away from the Sun. Different cultures define different dates as the start of winter, and some use a definition based on weather. When it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere, it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa. In many regions, winter is associated with snow and freezing temperatures. The moment of winter solstice is when the Sun’s elevation with respect to the North or South Pole is at its most negative value (that is, the Sun is at its farthest below the horizon as measured from the pole). The day on which this occurs has the shortest day and the longest night, with day length increasing and night length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The earliest sunset and latest sunrise dates outside the polar regions differ from the date of the winter solstice, however, and these depend on latitude, due to the variation in the solar day throughout the year caused by the Earth’s elliptical orbit (see earliest and latest sunrise and sunset).
