While You're Away
Cabins and second homes can be great for vacations and weekend getaways, but when it comes to the severe winters of the upper Midwest, they come with their own set of concerns. During our harsh winter months, these homes can sustain damage from frozen and cracked pipes if their heating systems stop working. Lakes Gas can provide the heat for your second home and protect it against the cold with safe, cost-effective propane.
In order to minimize your risk, Lakes Gas recommends the following prevention systems:
- Install a low temperature warning device and employ the services of a caretaker or neighbor (emergency contact information should be provided to Lakes Gas Co.) to check on your property if left unattended for any period of time.
- In the event of your dwelling losing heat, turn off the water supply before restoring heat to the building to avoid water damage from possible broken water pipes.
We want to help you keep your cabin or second home safely warm during our severe winters. If you'd like to receive propane service for an unoccupied home, contact us today for details and pricing.
