Winterizing your home to prepare for the cold months is crucial to help protect your property. But once the cold season is over, you need to de-winterize to return your home to normal. De-winterizing generally means reversing the action you took to winterize your home.
Common action that most people take to winterize their homes include:
• Disconnecting flexible supply tubes for toilets, sinks, washing machine, dishwasher, among other appliances,
• Shutting water and draining the pipes to prevent freezing
• Programming thermostat and alarm systems
• Unplugging appliances
• Forwarding or canceling mail service
Towards the end of the winter season, all these actions need to be reversed to bring your house back to normal. Below are steps you need to take to de-winterize your home.
• Turn on any electrical circuits that had been shut off
If you had shut off some electrical devices, you need to turn them on. Common electrical appliances that people shut when winterizing include furnace circuit and circuit breakers. Turn them on to bring things to normalcy.
• Connect water supply pipes
If you had disconnected your water pipe and tubes to prevent freezing during the winter season, you need to connect them back. This is best done by an experienced plumber. Reconnect all flex tubes and pipes. Inspect all pipes before connecting them back. Once you are certain that all disconnected water supply pipes and tubed have been reconnected, turn on the main water supply then inspect them to see if there is any leakage
