Frozen pipes can lead to expensive repairs and many headaches. If the temperature drops below twenty degrees Fahrenheit, your pipes run the risk of freezing. Luckily, there are several preventative steps you can take.
Open your cabinet doors. This allows warm is to circulate closer to your pipes.
Keep your faucet on a slow, steady drip. The moving water prevents freezing.
Keep your thermostat turned up during the day and night. Often times, people turn their thermostats down in the night to save on heating costs. During a winter storm, it’s okay to spring for those few extra degrees of warmth! Frozen pipes would be a much costlier problem.
Keep your garage door closed.
