5 Tips to Help Homeowners Prevent Pipes from Freezing

With the recent cold wave across the US, here are some helpful tips to prevent your pipes from freezing this winter.

1. Keep the heat on in your home, even when you’re not there (ideally, 68° and no less than 55°)

2. Insulate your pipes

3. Keep the cabinet doors open to allow warm air to reach the pipes

4. Let the cold water drip (keeping water moving through your pipes, even at a drip, can help prevent freezing)

5. Keep your garage doors closed
