Cold WX Pipe Protection

As we experience freezing temperatures in the area residents take precaution to prevent their pipes from freezing.

Tips to protect your home…

Water pipes in a home or business that are along an exterior wall, in unheated attics, crawl spaces or garages can freeze with the current temperatures. It’s a good idea to leave a small stream of water running to keep water moving through those pipes.

If a sink is located against an outside wall – open cabinet doors to allow warm air to get to pipes.

If a water meter is in a crawl space or garage make sure it is properly covered. It’s also a good idea to keep the garage door closed.
