The winter can be very harsh on your home plumbing system and can cause thousands of dollars of unnecessary plumbing repairs. When winter arrives temperatures can drop well below freezing for months. This can have a very adverse effect on plumbing systems around Worcester. Pipes often freeze when they are poorly insulated or when they subjected to these extremely low temperatures.

Frozen pipes are one of the most frequent emergency plumbing issue that professional plumbers in Worcester, MA are called for during the winter. Many pipes freeze and burst either due to improper installation or lack of protection during the winter weather. If this will be your first winter in your new home, or if you have experienced frozen pipes in the past, it is important to hire plumbers who are well-equipped to provide plumbing system inspection services to your home.

With proper preventive maintenance, plumbing problems and repairs can be avoided this winter. Before the temperatures drop call a certified professional plumber to check on potential exposed plumbing pipes, outdoor sprinkler systems and outdoor spigots. To protect your pipes from the cold weather they need to be properly wrapped with heat tape or insulation in order to keep water lines warm during winter. It is also important to shut the outdoor water supply and drain water from outdoor plumbing fixtures that are not used during the winter such as outside toilets, showers, sinks, and sprinkler systems in order to protect them from freezing in low temperatures.
