Winter is Coming!!
As the seasons change and winter quickly approaches frozen pipes are a major concern for many homeowners. The likelihood of a frozen pipe is dependent upon where the pipes are located in your home and how well they are insulated.
When water freezes in a pipe it expands. As frozen water expands the pipe will burst! This sometimes can cause serious damage to your home.
Here are some simple tips on how to prevent your pipes from freezing inside your home:
-Keep your thermostat set to the same temperature consistently day & night! Sometimes spending a little extra helps you save in the long run!
-Turn your sinks on! Running water through the pipe, just a small trickle will help keep water flow active & helps prevent the pipe from freezing.
-Open up your cabinets! This will allow warm air to circulate around all of your plumbing.
