During freezing conditions, homeowners should take the following precautions to prevent their pipes from freezing:
• Allow a continuous trickle of water to flow through faucet(s) to help minimize the chances of freezing pipes.
• Seal any leaks around doors or windows to reduce drafts that could lead to pipes freezing.
• Open cabinet doors in the kitchen and bathrooms to allow the heat from the house to circulate.
• Wrap interior piping running along outside walls with pipe insulation or heat tape.
A sign that your interior piping may be frozen is evident when there is a reduced trickle of water from your faucet. Do not attempt to thaw a frozen pipe yourself using an open flame. Contact a qualified plumbing contractor to do the work.
