Prevent Frozen Pipes By Winterizing Your Plumbing, Bristol, Connecticut

If you wind up with frozen pipes, there’s a significant chance they will burst, leading to flooding and major water damage within your home. To minimize your risk, follow these guidelines from James J.Rybczyk Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning:

  • frozen pipesInsulate Your Pipes: The most crucial task in preventing frozen pipes is wrapping them with insulation. As the temperature dips, hold in the heat with top-quality wrapping supplies. For help finding supplies for your system or applying the proper techniques, reach out to James J.Rybczyk Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning. 
  • Open Up Your Cabinets: Even with well-insulated pipes, it’s important to send as much heat their way as possible. When it gets chilly outside, open the cabinet doors that lead to your pipes. That way, you’ll create more opportunities for household heat to make contact with them.
  • Get A Drip Going: On the coldest nights, turn on a few faucets to a slight drip. By feeding a small amount of water into your pipes, you can alleviate some of the pressure that builds up when one or multiple pipes freezes. 

Even with the most careful precautions, you can’t always avoid frozen pipes.
