When temperatures fall below freezing we find that many water lines tend to freeze. A few preventative measures can help you limit large repair bills. Spending time before freezing conditions arrive can help ensure that your pipes endure the cold weather. Making sure to follow the following practices can help you save in the long run:
- Make sure your pipes are not exposed to freezing temperatures. Insulate pipes in areas of your home where temperatures may fall below freezing.
- Make sure that outside lines are covered and faucets are insulated. Faucet covers, or freeze proof faucets can help prevent outdoor faucet problems.
- Not only should you make sure that water supply lines are insulated, you should also ensure that drain lines are properly installed. High efficiency furnaces have drain lines that may freeze if they are not supported properly. Make sure the drain has a proper drop so that I will freely drain and does not cause a trap where the pipe may droop as it flows out of the attic or crawl space.
- When the forecast calls for extended low temperatures, homeowners can leave faucets dripping to keep water flowing through the lines. Moving water through the line can help prevent freezing.
- Proper foundation venting is another mode of preventative maintenance for water pipes. Make sure that your house crawl space is not open to drafts that can cause pipes to freeze.
Take a few minutes to watch the following video from “This Old House” and make the necessary changes you need to make in your home to prevent freezing pipes.
