Cincinnati's Top Plumbing Contractor on Tricks to Avoid Frozen Pipes January 27, 2016

Cincinnati's Top Plumbing Contractor on Tricks to Avoid Frozen Pipes, Norwood, Ohio

People who live in cold regions experience all kinds of winter weather extremes, which range from simply annoying to potentially life threatening. Fortunately, there are plenty of preventative tips available to people who want to escape weather-related problems like frozen or burst pipes, which could lead to expensive home repairs. Today, we, the plumbing contractors at the full-service plumbing repair company Allied Reddi-Rooter of Cincinnati, want to tell you two tricks to avoid frozen pipes.

  • Let a Little Water Trickle: When the temperature outside starts bringing the freezing winds, ice, and snow, it's time to take preventative action around the home. Running water can't freeze, so we at Allied Reddi-Rooter recommend that homeowners let a small amount of water trickle from the faucets in the house. Letting the water run for a period of time every day is a simple, inexpensive way to keep the pipes from freezing.

  • Keep the Temperature the Same: You might not be able to change the temperature outside (no matter how hard you think about it), but you can control what's going on inside. Though keeping the temperature the same during the day and at night will increase your heating bill, doing this during particularly cold times will prevent even more expensive pipe repairs. Better still, we'd like to remind homeowners that it's only really necessary to do this when it's extremely cold outside.

At Allied Reddi-Rooter, we're available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, standing by and ready to help you with any plumbing issues you might have. We've been in business since 1950, and can do anything from a simple drain cleaning to a sump pump repair to fixing burst pipes. For more information, call us at Allied Reddi-Rooter today at (513) 396-5300, or visit our website and like us on Facebook.
