Preventing Frozen Pipes

11/4/2019 (Permalink)

The temperatures are beginning to drop below freezing, which means that frozen pipe season is upon us. Many homeowners in West Michigan fall victim to frozen pipes and experience thousands of dollars worth of damage. Here are some ways that you can prevent your pipes from freezing:

- Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing.

- Let the cold water drip from the faucet.

- Even when away, keep the heat on in your home.

- Add insulation to attics, basements, and crawl spaces.

If you do experience a frozen pipe, turn the faucet on and apply heat to the frozen section of the pipe. Continue to thaw until full water pressure is restored. If you are unable to locate the frozen area or unable to thaw the pipe, call a licensed plumber.
