Tips to Help Prevent Frozen Pipes


If provided, close inside valves supplying water to outdoor faucets and hookups. Disconnect any hoses from exterior faucets. 


Open outdoor faucets to allow residual water to drain; be sure to keep them open during the cold weather months, while the water supply is turned off. 


Keep garage doors closed to help protect water pipes located in the garage. 


Open the doors on cabinets where plumbing is located. This can help allow warmer air to circulate around the pipes. 


For pipes that are at risk of freezing (both hot and cold water pipes), let water drip from faucets. 


Keep the heat in your home set at a minimum of 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
