How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

(and What to Do if They Happen to You)

Winter weather can bring harsh elements like plummeting temperatures, snow and ice. Of course, we know to bundle up, but have you thought about your plumbing? A common problem when temperatures drop is for our pipes to freeze, halting the flow of hot water into your home. Frozen pipes also run the risk of cracking or bursting, which can cause major water damage, mold and expensive repairs.

We have put together a helpful guide to prevent your pipes from freezing and what to do if they freeze.
