When the temperature is extremely cold, water pipes in your home or business may freeze. To help prevent frozen pipes take the following precautions:

  • Check for open windows, air vents, and wind drafts near water pipes
  • Seal leaks in the basement foundation where cold air may enter; stuff holes with insulation; a tiny opening may cause an exposed pipe to freeze
  • Allow a slow trickle of water to flow through faucets connected to water pipes that run through unheated spaces
  • Keep sink cabinet doors open during cold spells to allow warm air to circulate around the pipes
  • Insulate pipes in unheated spaces like garages, basements, and crawl spaces
  • Locate the water shut off valve and know how to shut off water; if a pipe bursts, shutting off the water promptly can help minimize the damage
  • If your pipes freeze, use a hair dryer to thaw the lines safely; thawing will not be fast, but it will be safe: never use an open flame to thaw
