Frozen Pipes- How to Prevent This Winter!
Preventing frozen pipes this winter is one of the keys to preventing a water damage in your home. Here are some tips and tricks to prevent this from happening in your home!
- Keep your thermostat at a reasonable temperature! During the day and night keep your thermostat at the same temperature. You need to constantly have warm air circulating to prevent pipes from freezing!
- Insulate your pipes especially if have pipes against an exterior wall!
- Let faucets drip! If pipes are exposed to cold keep water running at a trickle.
- Open Cupboard. If you have any pipes under vanities open up your cupboard doors to let heat circulate and warm up those pipes!
