Frozen Pipe Don't let your pipes freeze this winter

February of 2021 has not skipped a beat when it comes to the winter weather. Starting off the month with a snowstorm that dumped 9 inches on us in one night. Week two is calling for low temperatures that we haven't seen in a few years. 

What this means for you?

When temperatures drop this rapidly for the first time of the season you should always be on the lookout for pipe breaks. Since water expands when it freezes this can lead to cracks or even a full burst of a water pipe in your home. 

Ways to prevent this:

1. Monitor all pipes in unheated areas within your home. 

2. Keep garage door shut at all times 

3. Let faucets drip so there isn't water build ups

4. Open cabinets to regulate temperatures

5. Keep a consistent temperature throughout your home
