Nevada isn’t necessarily known for its cold temperatures. In fact, it’s quite normal for parts of Nevada to see temperatures in the 100s during the summer. So when you see friends on social media complaining about cold weather and snow during winter, you can’t exactly relate.
One major problem for homeowners during winter is the possibility of freezing pipes. In places that regularly dip below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, frozen and busted pipes become a very big reality for many. But as a homeowner in Nevada, do you even have to worry about that?
While chances aren’t high that your pipes will freeze (even in the dead of winter), it can still happen. After all, one good night of freezing weather is all it takes to bust your pipes and cause a great deal of plumbing damage.
If you own a vacation home in Central or Northern Nevada where temperatures frequently drop (or you want to prepare for a freak cold spell…hey, it happens!), you should take cautionary steps to winterize your pipes and prevent damage.
