Question- “I am going to shut off the water to the house. Should I open the faucets in the house?”

Answer In our opinion, you should winterize your home which means blow the water lines out with air, antifreeze drain lines and drain the water heater.  The theory of opening the faucets is to drain the water out of the lines so they don’t freeze; however, the problem with this is you don’t end up getting all the water out of lines.
