For those who leave homes in cold weather parts of the country (where winter daytime temps are frequently below freezing), and do not have someone periodically checking or house sitting, what is your winterize checklist? We're in southwest Montana and my list is currently as follows: - close and secure all crouch space vents using foam insulation blocks - turn off well pump, flush toilets, open all faucets, and low point drain on well pressure tank - add RV anti-freeze to all p-traps and toilets - open all sink cabinet doors - set the gas furnace to 58F - set the gas water heater to vacation setting - unplug all wall appliances (debating on the refer) I should note that our home is a rambler that has good thermal efficiency. The forced air propane gas furnace is located in the crouch space which, even during our coldest night last year -25F, remained above freezing (42F). Love to hear other tips and recommendations.
