5 Tips For Preventing Frozen Pipes

1. Inspect and Insulate

Check vulnerable areas like basements, crawl spaces, and exterior walls. Shield exposed pipes with pipe sleeves or heat tape to maintain a consistent temperature and thwart freezing.

Keep your home cozy by setting the thermostat no lower than 68 degrees Fahrenheit, ensuring continuous heating to prevent pipes from turning into ice.

Don't let cold drafts sneak in! Seal any openings in walls, windows, and doors with caulk or weather stripping, even tiny gaps, as small as a quarter, can pose a risk to your pipes.
