ABT Installes a Back-Up Generator

Banner Lava Cap is known for its snowy winters. Thanks to a back-up generator recommended and installed by ABT Plumbing & Electric, scenic snowstorms are worry-free. Double-pane windows, generous insulation and well-placed shutters (both internal and external) help conserve energy while keeping the home toasty warm. “Barbara Hartwick of Nevada City gave me good practical and aesthetic advice,” Laurie added.

ABT Was Quoted in The Union

For those who didn’t wrap their pipes, Andrew Twidwell of ABT Plumbing was on call. He said he only sees freezes this bad every five to 10 years.

“We’ve got a lot of work with broken pipes, and we’re still reeling from that,” he said. “We’re doing triage — just stopping the bleeding and getting people back online.”

His advice to keep ice plugs from developing inside pipes: Leave a faucet on, and know where the water shut-off valve is to avoid a flood if a pipe does break.
