REMINDER Survival of Winter Weather

Post by activities » December 21st, 2016, 5:17 pm

Preparing for an Amazing Winter at Canyon Vistas.

We are once again approaching that time of year when we experience cold or
freezing temperatures. The resort is full, and we need to take the following
precautions to prevent pipes from freezing and help prevent excessive electric
loads from affecting the service grid in the resort:
  1. Take appropriate precautions around water pipes and connections to ensure
    they are properly insulated or protected from freezing, yes it can happen
    here. Park Homes should also do the same at their water connections and
    risers.
  2. Keep your thermostats set at constant temperatures, avoid turning them
    way down at night and then back up in the morning as that puts excessive
    loads on the electrical system.
  3. Avoid the use of electric fireplaces and space heaters in the morning. They
    draw a lot of power. Limit the use in the evenings during the real cold spells.
  4. In the morning, please take a few minutes when starting electrical appliances
    and avoid turning them on all at once.
  5. If you plan on doing laundry in your home, please wait until later in the day
    when usage is typically lower.
With everyone taking a few precautions, we can hopefully avoid any issues with
your water and electric service.

Many Thanks,

Randy and Mary Sprow
