Tips to Prevent Pipes from Freezing & Bursting

As the temperature starts to drop, the cold settles in and the chill spreads everywhere. Foggy windows and snowy days also means the weather cools houses too, giving the need to insulate it or heat it to prevent freezing.

There are simple ways to prevent pipes from freezing that include using a heater for a long period of time and keeping tap water running. These methods might seem expensive but are relatively cheaper than costly repair bills that come from water damages once a pipe bursts. Here are a few things you could to do prevent freezing:

  • Keep kitchen & bathroom cabinet doors open - to allow warm air to circulate the space
  • Seal entire house - keep all the doors and windows closed to allow no chance of cold air entering the house
  • Keep a constant temperature on the thermostat - set the room temperature to be warm throughout the day and night
  • Keep the faucet open - keeping a little water running constantly helps prevent frosts from forming in the pipelines
