Alfa says take pre­cau­tions and you will turn back the win­ter woes

Cherokee County Herald - - SPORTS -

Win­ter’s ar­rival evokes a sense of ex­cite­ment about the prom­ise of a clean slate the New Year brings. But, lurk­ing be­hind the warm glow of a roar­ing fire­place is the harsh re­al­ity cooler tem­per­a­tures can cause home and busi­ness own­ers — frozen pipes.

In an ef­fort to re­duce cus­tomers’ need to file prop­erty dam­age claims, Alfa’s Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent of Claims Bryan Hub­bard en­cour­ages res­i­dents to take a few ex­tra min­utes this month to prac­tice good mea­sures that could help avoid frozen pipes and busted bud­gets.

“South­ern win­ters don’t re­sem­ble the snow-cov­ered im­ages we see on Christ­mas cards, but that doesn’t mean we’re im­mune to freez­ing tem­per­a­tures,” Hub­bard said.
