Winterization Tips From Lake Ozark Real Estate Inspections

From the desk of Jeff Foster - 
Are you doing a full winterization?  If so the standard protocols are to drain the plumbing system, this includes draining all water lines and having them blown out with pressurized air.  RV anti freeze is then added to toilet bowls and plumbing fixture traps.  Other steps include turning off all appropriate breakers to the appropriate mechanical systems (Note-If the smoke alarms are hard wired be sure the associated breakers stay on).  Some homeowners also choose to cover the exterior A/C -Heat Pump Unit, seal the crawl space (if applicable) and unplug all the major appliances.  These winterization techniques are for private single family homes-I'm not aware of any condo complexes here at the lake that allow full winterization.  Most of the condo POA's have strict guidelines for partial winterization techniques-furnaces set at certain temperature etc.
