Preventing Pipes From Freezing
Frozen Pipes. If you’ve ever had the misfortune of having a water pipe freeze and burst, you know that’s an experience you only want to have once in a lifetime. It’s not just the aggravation and cost of fixing the pipe itself, it’s the damage the burst pipe does to the rest of your home. Walls, ceilings, floors and personal possessions stored in the basement or crawl space can all be ruined. Damages are sometimes covered by insurance, but depending on circumstances, you might just be on your own. Plus, even if your home insurance does cover the damage, you’re still going to be living in a construction zone until the mess gets repaired. Obviously, making sure your pipes don’t freeze is a much better option.
