Prevent Frozen Pipes

How To Prevent Frozen Water Pipes

1. Insulate pipes in crawl spaces, attics, and basements that are exposed to the cold.

2. Heat tape or thermostat-controlled heat cables can be used to wrap pipes.

3. Seal all cracks and holes in outside walls and foundations near water pipes that allow cold air in, especially around electrical
wiring, dryer vents, and windows.

4. Keep your kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors open during cold spells to allow warm air to circulate around pipes.

5. If you have faucets connected to pipes that run through unheated or unprotected spaces, keep slow trickles of water
flowing.
