Each winter, homes are damaged due to water pipes that freeze and burst. By taking a few simple precautions, you can help save yourself from the mess, money, and headaches of burst frozen pipes. Exposed pipes are more likely to freeze.
Insulate pipes in your home’s unconditioned spaces, basement, and attic.
Heat tape can be used to wrap pipes.
Drain and disconnect garden hoses and insulate hose bibs.
Know where your water shut off valve is located.
