Frozen Pipe Prevention
Frozen Pipe Prevention
There’s a chill in the air! With November quickly approaching, the excitement of family get togethers and cozy snow-filled afternoons can distract us from preparing our humble abodes for the winter season. Don’t let yourself get caught without the insight to follow!
Frozen pipes can wreak havoc on homes and businesses throughout the course of the winter. There are preventative measures you can take to decrease chances of a costly plumbing disaster in your own dwelling. Be sure both warm and cold water pipes are well insulated and that your home or business is kept at a consistent temperature no lower that 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in mind that the money you try to save by lowering thermostat temperatures in the evening will easily be lost by the cost of a repair to a pipe that bursts. The licensed plumbers with Repairman also remind us to shut off valves and drain water from pipes and hoses associated with outdoor equipment such as swimming pools and sprinkler systems. Piping that runs through exterior walls has a higher risk for developing issues. Running a slow trickle of water through lines such as these can help prevent a solid freeze on an extra frigid day. You can also keep lower cabinet doors open to expose sink pipes to warmer indoor air and keep water flowing. If you do suspect a pipe has frozen, shut off the valve associated with it and activate your Repairman App. A qualified plumber will be there to assist you with repairs in no time!
