Don't Forget Your Charlotte Irrigation Winterization

As we enter into the month of November, it is hard to ignore the extra nip in the air. According to local forecasters, the Charlotte region will experience lows in the 30's this week, and cold fronts will be making their way up the east coast. If you haven't prepared for winter, now is a good time to do it because the cold temperatures are here to stay.

Part of preparing your home for the winter includes Charlotte irrigation winterization. Just like you would prepare other features of your home for the cold weather, your irrigation system should also be included.

"Charlotte homeowners should schedule their winterization services as soon as possible," said John Minor of Irrigation & Lighting Specialist. "Temperatures have already dropped below freezing, and it will only continue to get colder. It is very important to get your system winterized because it is the best way to protect it from damage."

Charlotte Irrigation Winterization Reminder

If you haven't noticed, the Charlotte region is full of transplants from other states. One of the main reasons people have been flocking to Charlotte is because of the nice weather we enjoy, especially compared to the harsh conditions in the northeast. 

While it is true that we experience mild winters, there is still a need for irrigation winterization. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration states that Charlotte averages around 2.1 inches of snow each year. This many not sound like blizzard conditions, but it does mean that temperatures are low enough to damage your irrigation system if you avoid winterization. 

When temperatures are below freezing, it causes the remaining water in your pipes and sprinkler heads to freeze. As the water freezes, it expands and causes essential parts to your irrigation system to crack and spilt. This damage can be costly and will prevent your system from working properly in the spring. 

"Charlotte may have great weather, but don't think that there isn't a need for winterization," said Minor. "Winterization is far cheaper than irrigation repairs, and we don't want people to find that out the hard way. Call to schedule a winterization appointment now and avoid bigger problems in the future."
