Beware of frozen pipes as we creep into winter. At the very least, it’s horribly annoying not to have water available when you need it. But even worse, frozen pipes lead to cracks, leaks, and BURSTS! So if the temp in your area is dropping fast, get the know-how on preventing frozen pipes this winter.
1. Add Extra Insulation
Frozen pipes are not just a problem for cold climate areas. Cold climate dwellers are typically more prepared for freezing temps so their pipes are already cared for. It’s warmer climates that are struck by unprecedented drops in temperature who experience problems from frozen pipes. If you live in an area that occasionally reaches freezing temperatures, check the insulation around pipes to see if you’re properly prepared.
