Now that winter is officially here, one thing is certain: it’s going to get cold. And when temperatures drop below freezing, unprotected pipes can freeze, leading to costly repairs and a whole lot of inconvenience.
Why risk it when you can protect it?
We understand the stress that comes with dealing with frozen pipes, water damage, and the potential havoc it can wreak on your home or business. That’s why we’ve put together a list of tips to help keep your pipes from freezing during these colder months!
4 Tips to Keep Your Pipes Warm:
- Insulate Exposed Pipes: Insulate any pipes that are exposed to cold air, such as those in crawl spaces, basements, or attics. You can use foam pipe insulation or heat tape to protect them.
- Keep Interior Doors Open: Keep interior doors open to allow warm air to circulate throughout your home, including spaces where pipes are located.
- Allow Faucets to Drip: When temperatures drop significantly, allow a small amount of water to drip from your faucets. The continuous flow of water can help prevent pipes from freezing.
- Easy Access to Your Main Water Shut-Off Valve: In case of an emergency, make sure you know the location of your main water shut-off valve. If a pipe does freeze and burst, shutting off the water supply can help minimize damage.
