Frozen Water Pipes can be Prevented with the Help of Professional Plumbers - Boston, Worcester, MA

03 Feb 2015

To prevent frozen pipes in your home during extremely cold weather conditions, hire professional plumbers in Boston, MA. Professional plumbers can pick up signs that pipes have the potential for freezing and can offer tips for prevention.

Homeowners can prevent frozen water pipes which are all too common during very cold temperatures like those we have been experience in Worcester and Boston this winter. If you have water supply lines in the garage, adjacent laundry room, or other cold or uninsulated area you have the potential for frozen water pipes. Most homes have pipes that run under counters and within cabinets. One preventive measure is to keep cabinet doors open in order let the warm air circulate and reach the pipe line underneath. Let the cold water in the faucet drip slowly overnight and periodically flush the toilet. This keeps the water moving so it is less likely to freeze. Keeping your house heated at 68 degrees or higher can also help.

While you can prepare for the cold, an expert plumber can help get your plumbing prepared as well. Professional plumbers can determine where the air is getting into your house and seal your pipes it immediately with insulation or other pipe insulation techniques. This ensures that exposed pipes will be properly insulated with pipe sleeves or heat cables.
