Tips For Your Home During Freezing Weather

Real Estate Broker/Owner with THE TEMPLE TEAM




• Keep your home heated to a minimum of 65 degrees to keep the inside walls from freezing. 

• Know where your main water shutoff is located within your home in case a pipe would burst due to freezing.  

• Turn on Hot AND Cold faucets to a "slow drip" AND open cabinet doors below sink if there are any ... this will help to prevent freezing pipes. 

• Make sure all hoses are disconnected from outside spigots. 

• If you should happen to discover that pipes ARE frozen ... don't wait for them to burst. Take measures to safely thaw them immediately, or call a plumber for assistance.

• After all precautions ... if your pipes should still burst from freezing, first thing to do is turn off the main water line.  Then mop up water as quickly as possible to prevent any further damage.

My daughter has some sort of electrical heating wrap on her home's pipes to keep them from freezing.  They still need to keep the water running to keep the pipes from freezing when it's really cold... and it gets really cold often in Michigan!

The good old days in Buffalo as a kid. Great reminders for people that live those areas

If you do disover frozen pipes, I recommend getting the plumber to defrost them. If a pipe is split and starts to leak, the plumber is on site to make the repair. The plumber can also give you advice on where to improve insulation or ways to prevent future freezes.
