Freezing cold temperatures are here in full force. There are certain measures you should take to prevent your pipes from freezing over and potentially cracking. We've been in the business for a long time and can tell you that a little bit of preparation now can save you thousands of dollars in the future. The last thing you'd want is for a pipe to freeze up and then crack once you try to run some hot water through it.
Some things you can do to prevent freezing pipes is to turn on the heater to keep the house warm. Open the cabinets under your sink and faucet to let some of that warm air in. Turn on the faucet to a slow drip so that any water that might be trapped inside doesn't freeze up. These are some things that you can do yourself to make sure your plumbing stays safe.
