Frozen Pipe Prevention

Frozen Pipe Prevention

With dropping temperatures, the risk of pipes freezing increases. When pipes freeze with water in them, the water expands and may cause the pipe to burst. This leads to indoor floods and severe water damage. Preventing frozen pipes before they burst can save you a lot on costly repair bills.

To guard against frozen pipes, you need to insulate all exterior pipes leading in and out of your house to make sure none of them succumb to the chill of winter. Researchers say the problem starts once the temperature gets below 20℉ and gets more pronounced the lower it goes. You should also insulate pipes that run into the attic, basement, garage, and even the exterior ones.

  • Keep kitchen & bathroom cabinet doors open - This will allow warm air to circulate throughout the space.
  • Seal the entire house - Keeping all doors & windows closed allows no chance for cold air to enter the house.
  • Keep a constant temperature on the thermostat - Set a warm, consistent indoor temperature throughout the day and night.
  • Keep the faucet open - Let your faucet drip constantly to prevent frozen pipes because of circulating water.
