Tips to prevent frozen pipes


With the bitter cold temperatures we have been experiencing this week, a lot of people are suffering with frozen pipes and burst pipes. We have a few tips of things you can do to help prevent this from happening:  If your home has a crawl-space: -Consider putting heat tape and insulation on all water lines within the crawl space; at minimum you should cover all openings into the space, including any vent openings. -If you can do so safely, you may also consider putting an electric heater in the crawl space. -If you have access to the crawl space from within the home, you can leave the access door open to allow some heat to make its way into the space.
