How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

A faucet that won’t yield water is the first sign of frozen pipes. If a severe cold snap hits, prevent freezing and subsequent bursting of pipes by following the suggestions below. Even if the pipes do freeze, you can thaw them before they burst if you act quickly. When temperatures fall very low, here’s how to prevent frozen pipes:

Keep a trickle of water running from the faucets.
Beam a heat lamp or small heater at exposed pipes.
Wrap un-insulated pipes with newspapers, heating wires, foam or self-adhesive insulating tape.

Keep doors ajar between heated and unheated rooms.
