Minnesota residents routinely face below freezing temperatures during the winter months. Sudden and extreme drops in temperature combined with poor pipe insulation can result in frozen water pipes. Frozen pipes can easily burst and when that happens, your home is left vulnerable to severe damage. Don’t let a frozen or burst pipe get the best of you—call Neighborhood for any frozen and burst pipe repairs this winter!
Frozen Pipe Prevention
At Neighborhood, our expert plumbers have seen and repaired their fair share of frozen or burst water pipes. Here’s a few ways that this type of plumbing disaster can be avoided:
- Proper insulation is essential to preventing pipes from freezing.
- Heat cables, heat tape or heat wraps may be applied to your your pipes for more extensive protection.
- Water pipes attached to garden hoses and other outdoor spigots are a high freezing risk. They aren’t exposed to your home’s indoor heating like the rest of your plumbing system. Make sure you shut them off and drain the water leading to all outside faucets every fall.
