The Effects of Winter Weather on Unoccupied Homes

Do you own a vacation home or rental property?

Do you own a home that’s unoccupied for an extended period of time? 

A rental home or vacation home may not receive the same level of regular maintenance and upkeep as primary residences, putting it at risk of damage from low temperatures, heavy snow and strong winds. 

Frozen septic pipes are common in unoccupied homes when temperatures drop below freezing. Frozen pipes can cause blockages, leading to backups and damage to the septic system. In addition, the pressure from ice buildup can cause cracks and leaks in the septic tank, which can be costly to repair.
