EUGENE, Ore. -- Residents are going above and beyond to keep their amenities safe during the cold weather.

Eugene resident Hunter Gray said he uses a ductless heating unit to cut down costs while keeping his home warm.

"We do have a gas fireplace that we turn on when it gets pretty cold," Gray said.

Tom Phillips, an employee at Jerry's Home Improvement, said homeowners should consider buying portable heaters, pipe insulation, heat tapes and faucet covers to use around the house to prevent damaging their amenities.
