How to Prevent Frozen Pipes and Why Choose My Professional Plumber

When temperatures begin to plummet, protecting your home’s plumbing from winter’s icy grip should be a top priority. Frozen pipes can lead to many problems, including costly damages and repair bills. Fortunately, you can take steps to prevent frozen pipes and ensure the safety of your plumbing system. If you need a professional plumber, contact My Professional Plumber.

Insulating Your Pipes

The first line of defense against freezing temperatures is proper insulation. Pipes that are exposed to exterior walls or those that run through unheated spaces are especially at risk. Insulating these pipes with foam sleeve covers or fiberglass creates an additional layer to help retain the heat within the pipes.

Heat Tape and Heat Cables

Heat tape or heat cables are an effective solution for areas where insulation might not be enough. When wrapped around pipes, these electrical heat sources provide just enough warmth to prevent the water inside from freezing. Following the manufacturer’s instructions is crucial to avoiding potential fire risks.

Seal Leaks That Let in Cold Air

Even small leaks can let in enough cold air to cause a pipe to freeze. Inspect areas where pipes run through walls or foundations and seal any leaks with caulk or insulation. A thorough check around doors, windows, and exterior walls can also reduce the risk of freezing.

Secure Outdoor Hoses, Valves, and Faucets

Outdoor plumbing fixtures are particularly susceptible to freezing. Before winter arrives, disconnect and store garden hoses, shut off outdoor valves, and consider using faucet covers to provide extra protection against the cold.

Let Water Drip

Keeping water moving through the pipes on especially cold nights can help prevent freezing. Allowing a trickle of water to drip from faucets, especially those served by pipes exposed to severe cold, can make all the difference.

Adjust the Thermostat

Maintaining a consistent temperature day and night can help stave off the cold. While it may increase your heating bill, the cost is negligible compared to the expense and inconvenience of a burst pipe.
