Keep Pipes from Freezing

Frozen pipes can burst and cause thousands of dollars in damage. Adding pipe insulation is an affordable solution to this problem. Here’s how to keep your pipes safe:

  1. Insulate your outdoor faucets. Purchase an outdoor faucet cover and place it over your exterior faucets.
  2. Insulate your interior pipes. Cut insulation to length and wrap each of your interior pipes.
  3. Let your faucets drip. Allowing your faucets to drip will keep your pipes from freezing in extreme cold.
