Prevent Freezing & Major Damage in Winter



To prevent pipes from freezing and causing major damage, there are 6 easy things to do:
  • Keep your thermostat at the same temperature day and night. Never let it fall below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, especially when you leave your home.
  • Drain water from pipes that are likely to freeze. This includes your swimming pool and sprinkler water supply lines.
  • Disconnect any hoses from the outside of your home; drain the hoses.
  • Make sure to close the indoor valves supplying these outdoor access points.
  • Open kitchen cabinets. This allows the warm air to circulate around the pipes.
  • Allow your faucets to drip cold water on the coldest days. The movement will make it harder for the water to freeze.
What to do if your pipes have frozen and burst:
  • Shut off all water
  • Call a plumber
  • Call a water mitigation company
  • Call your insurance company to see if you have coverage for this type of loss
