With all of the cold weather that has been running rampant this winter, it is important to be aware of frozen pipes. This is a reality, and can happen to many homeowners when they least expect it. The temperatures are not expected to reach above single digits for the next week or so, so it is important to stay on high alert and make sure that the heat in your house is at or above 55 degrees at all times.
Also, try to keep your cabinet doors open where pipes are located so that warm air can circulate and keep the pipes warmer. If you haven’t already, you should also look into pipe insulation or heat tape which can be found at your local hardware store. If you have in fact discovered that your pipes are frozen, you will need to try and thaw them. This can be done by wrapping towels soaked in warm water around the pipes, or by using a hair dryer to evenly distribute the heat along the length of the pipe.
