Frozen Pipes

Pipes can freeze in the cold weather and leave you without water or even cause pipes to burst. To avoid this inconvenience or property damage, there are steps that you can take to prevent frozen pipes. 

  • Insulate pipes most prone to freezing, like those near outside walls or in the garage, with foam pipe covers.
  • Seal air leaks in your home and garage to stop cold air from getting in. 
  • Outdoor faucets are the first to freeze. Unscrew any hoses, turn off the outdoor water supply, and let the taps drain.
  • Know where to find your main water shut off valve in case your pipes burst.
  • Consider contacting a plumber if your pipes are prone to freezing. There may be a problem you can’t see!
