How to Prevent Water Pipes From Bursting

3/3/2022 (Permalink)

When it comes to devastating situations such as floods and damages done to your home, there are great ways to be prepared, and ways to prevent these situations from happening. Here are a few staple tips for preventing water pipes from bursting that will help to protect your home from any damage in the future.

Direct Warm Air to the Colder Areas of Your Home

Pipes that usually freeze are close to a window or an outside wall. This technique will help to prevent those pipes from freezing. 

Keep Your Facets Running

During the frigid cold months, keeping your faucets running slowly will prevent the line from freezing.

Staying Up to Date on Your Home’s Temperature

In places of your home where the pipes you want to protect are located, make sure that the temperature does not get extremely low. This will help to prevent the pipes from freezing. 

Look for Air Leaks

Keeping an eye out for any air leaks can be detrimental to pipes and if they are not caught early will cause your pipes to burst. Using insulation or caulk will help to keep the cold air out.
