- Frozen pipes. When the temperature outside drops, the water in your pipes can freeze. As it freezes, it expands, which can cause the pipes to burst.
- Air flow. Improper airflow can be caused by an obstructed vent, dirty duct, or an issue with the furnace itself, which can even lead to fires.
- Heat loss. Below freezing temperatures can kick your system into overdrive, making it difficult to maintain consistent temperatures, and put pressures on the heating and also water systems.
- Power cuts. Lasting hours or even days, power outages render many devices unusable.
These are just a few of the worst case scenarios*, and when the worst happens, organisations must be able to recover in order to survive.
