It's no secret that the winter weather in Charleston is colder than usual, and with the end of this chill factor no where near in sight, it's important to take the necessary precuations.

It's important to start your car a bit before driving, by just few minutes, to let the engine warm up. It's also very important to know how to prevent the water pipes in your home from freezing, as this could cause serious damage and could be quite dangerous.

While Charleston Water System mains are not at risk for freezing, it's important to be prepared if the temperature in Charleston reaches that freezing level.
