Prevent Frozen Pipes In 2022
Although Fairfield County hasn’t experienced extended periods of freezing weather yet this season, colder temperatures are sure to be right around the corner. With colder temperatures comes the threat of frozen pipes, and in turn, water damage. Water can cause costly damage that may be overwhelming to deal, especially during the holiday season and beyond. Use these simple tips to save yourself the hassle.
Have Your Pipes Insulated - Talk to a plumber who may recommend that you insulate some or all of your water pipes to prevent them from freezing.
Control Your Thermostat - If the temperature in your home or office stays above a certain temperature, your pipes will be far less likely to freeze.
Keep A Drip Flowing - Frozen pipes occur when the water inside turns to ice, causing the pipe to expand. If you keep your faucets and showers dripping, the water will flow, making it far less likely to freeze.
