How to prevent pipes from freezing with power outage
Do I just shut the main water switch and drain the water out from the taps?
Do I need to worry about the water in the hot water tank? If yes, then how do I drain the water out from the hot water tank?
I have a gas fire place in the basement. Is it safe to start the gas fire place with no electricity ? ( just thinking that it may need electricity for ventilation).
My house temp is now at around 6 degrees Celsius.
Thanks so much.
