Winter and Frozen Pipes
Freezing water can crack or burst pipes in your home or business. Frozen pipes that burst can cause water damage along with broken pipes.
Tips for preventing frozen pipes:
- Drain all outdoor water lines such as faucets, fountains, and sprinkler lines. Shut off the water to these lines.
- Insulate pipes in any unheated areas such as cabinets, under the sink, basements, attics or garages. Pipes in exterior walls that don’t have proper insulation frequently freeze.
- During frigid weather let water trickle from your faucets.
- Open cabinet doors under the sinks in the kitchen and bathroom to let heat in to warm the pipes.
