irrigation system winterization yet? If not, you should call and schedule an appointment with Charlotte irrigation service company Irrigation & Lighting Specialist! Last night, temperatures reached 30°F. With December beginning, time is running out to protect your irrigation system from the dangers of freezing!
"Charlotte homeowners should call immediately to schedule their irrigation system winterization," says John Minor of Irrigation & Lighting Specialist. "Temperatures have already been reaching below freezing. It's more important than ever to take the steps necessary to protect your irrigation system from unnecessary damage."
Charlotte Irrigation Systems in Danger
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Charlotte averages around 2.1 inches of snow each January and a little over an inch in February and March. While this may not sound like blizzard conditions, it does mean that the temperatures drop low enough to pose a significant danger to your irrigation system.
When temperatures drop below freezing, it can cause the remaining water in the pipes and sprinkler heads to freeze. As the water freezes, it expands and causes the pipes and sprinkler heads to crack and burst. The damage that this causes can prove to be costly, especially when compared to the cost of properly winterizing the system.
"While it's true that Charlotte enjoys great weather, it doesn't mean that we don't also have at least a few periods of harsh conditions during the winter," says Minor. "It makes financial sense to recognize that and properly shut-down your irrigation system so that you aren't faced with enormous repair costs in the Spring."
To schedule an appointment for your irrigation system winterization, call John Minor with Irrigation & Lighting Specialist at 877-433-5833 or email John. We look forward to helping you ensure your irrigation system is properly “put to bed” and ready to go again when spring comes around!
