Winter is Here!
When water freezes, it expands. So if the temperature of your pipes drops below 32 degrees, even for a short period, you run the risk of a pipe fracture of worse. Take precautions now to avoid a major headache later.
Winterize your pipes
Make sure your pipes are well insulated.
Never turn off the heat
When you leave home set the temperature to at least 55-degree F.
Let the faucets drip
When the temperature is expected to drop below freezing, turn on faucets along the exterior walls to create a small, steady drip.
Open all sink-base cabinet doors along exterior walls to allow more heat to reach the pipes.
