How To Prevent Frozen Pipes

To mitigate the risk of frozen pipes, it’s essential to take preventative measures such as draining outdoor supply lines, allowing a trickle of water to flow from faucets during cold spells, and keeping interior doors and garage doors closed to maintain warmth. For homes at risk during winter months, our experts can provide professional winterization services for comprehensive protection against freezing.

When water freezes, it expands, exerting immense pressure on pipes (both metal and plastic), which can lead to breaks and potential flooding. Insulating exposed pipes with heat tape, heat cable, or pipe sleeves, and adding insulation to your crawlspace, attic, and basement is a proactive measure to prevent this. Although relocating exposed pipes can seem costly, it’s a preventive action that significantly reduces the risk of water damage from burst pipes, offering long-term savings and peace of mind.

Tips From Chucky!

Steps You Can Take to Prevent A Frozen Pipe Emergency:

  • Drain and disconnect outdoor hoses; insulate exposed pipes.
  • Empty sprinkler systems and pools as recommended by installers.
  • Let cold water drip from faucets in freezing temperatures.
  • Open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to expose pipes to warmth; remove cleaners from children’s reach.
  • Keep the garage door closed to protect any exposed pipes inside.
  • Maintain a consistent thermostat setting, at least 55 degrees when away.
  • If pipes freeze, shut off the water main and use heat sources like hair dryers to thaw.
  • Consider professional winterization for vacant properties during winter.
