Frozen Pipe Season

1/2/2020 (Permalink)

Frozen pipe season is upon us. If you live in an older home, the risk of encountering frozen pipes is increased. However, it can happen to anyone because when water freezes, it expands and non-insulated pipes are more likely to burst or leak. A burst pipe can cause extraordinary damage if not handled immediately so in order to prevent pipes from freezing here are a few steps that you as a homeowner can take according to The American Red Cross:

  • Be sure to completely drain water from sprinkler lines as well as outside hoses
  • Open all of your kitchen cabinets to let warm air circulate around the plumbing
  • Let water drip from your faucets
  • Keep your heat set to the same temperature both day and night
