How To Avoid Frozen Pipes During the Winter

frozen pipe repair

Blind & Sons knows a thing or two about cold winters in Northeast Ohio. And one of the most frustrating things that can happen during a cold snap is having your pipes freeze. Frozen pipes can cause all sorts of headaches, from burst pipes and flooding to expensive repairs.

At Blind & Sons, we’re here to help you avoid frozen pipes this winter. Contact our team by calling (330) 753-7711 to learn what causes frozen pipes and how to prevent them.

What Causes Frozen Pipes?

Pipes freeze when the water inside them turns to ice. This can happen when the temperature outside drops below freezing and the water in the pipes doesn’t have enough insulation to keep it from turning to ice.

Frozen pipes can be dangerous because they can cause your pipes to burst. When water freezes, it expands. This expansion puts pressure on your pipes, which can cause them to crack or break. If the pipe bursts, you’ll have a mess to clean up and costly repairs.

Tips To Avoid Your Pipes Freezing

There are a few things you can do to help prevent your pipes from freezing this winter:

  • Keep your thermostat set to the same temperature day and night. A sudden drop in temperature can cause your pipes to freeze.
  • Let cold water drip from your faucets during frigid weather. This may waste water, but it can help prevent your pipes from freezing.
  • Keep cabinet doors open during cold snaps so warm air can reach your plumbing.
  • Seal cracks or gaps in your home’s exterior walls and foundation with caulk or insulation tape. These gaps can let cold air into your home, leading to frozen pipes.
  • If you’re going out of town during cold weather, have someone check on your home regularly to ensure the heat is still on and there are no signs of frozen pipes.
  • When temperatures are forecasted to drop below freezing, leave all interior doors open so that heat can circulate throughout your home more evenly.
