How To: Prevent Frozen Pipes

With winter refusing to leave lately on the East Coast, here are some quick tips to prevent the pipes from freezing around your homes and businesses.

insulate

Install foam sleeves or heat tape to water pipes that are easily accessible. Make sure to follow instructions carefully to prevent a fire hazard.

Let faucets drip

Let cold water drip from the faucet to relieve pressure and prevent pipes from freezing.

warm up

Keep your thermostat no lower than 50 degrees day & night. Open all cabinet doors with pipes inside to keep the pipes warm from the heat from the rest of the house.
