Winter Preparation Tip - Insulating your pipes [VIDEO]

Hey, everybody! As you know, winter is just around the corner, which means that soon temperatures will drop and stay low. While winter is many people's favorite time of year, the next few months can wreak havoc on your home if you do not take the proper protective steps.

In order to keep them safe, you will want to insulate the ones that are in any unheated areas of your home.
