Winter is Coming Soon!
Updated: Oct 20, 2021
Avoid unfortunate cold weather-related headaches and damages with Bevara’s winterization tips.
Interior To Do's
Heat: Verify all building heat systems are operating as intended. Don’t forget to check if vacant area heaters and mechanical room heaters are working properly.
Vacancies: make sure we are walking through vacancies and ensuring the heat is on and all is well.
Exterior To Do's
Gutters: It is best to clear gutters and roof drains to allow for proper drainage and to minimize ice buildup before the first snow.
Building Penetrations: Be sure all pipe and other penetrations are properly sealed. Improperly maintained wall penetrations are an open invite for cold air as well as pests.
Hose Valves & Connections: Turn off interior water feed, disconnect hoses, and drain valves.
Irrigation: Be sure all plant/landscaping irrigation systems are clear of standing water.
Doors: Check that all exterior entry doors have the proper weather guards and sweeps in place.
Plumbing & Fire Protection Systems: Inspect your fire protection system's air sources, air pressure levels, low point drains, and antifreeze solutions in accordance with NFPA25. Inspect all heat trace/tape to ensure it is operating if equipped.
